As you know, Ta-Nehisi Coates stepped into the international spotlight last year when his article “The Case for Reparations,” was featured as the cover story for the June 2014 issue of The Atlantic. In the article he puts forth the argument that Black Americans as a group – because of slavery, segregation, and Federal housing policy – have been prevented from building inter-generational wealth.  In the first hour you will hear my interview with him from last June.
