The beauty lies in it's simplicity
1 December 2020 | by mellenweldenseiSee all my reviews

Who would have thought that a book reading could move so much. This TV special showcases hightlights from the book Between the world and me by using todays finest black voices. The use of personal footage, historical footage and animation have turned the whole into a piece of art. A piece of art that cannot be missed. The story and language used by Ta-nehisi Coates is personal, poetic and literature at it's finest. I recommend this to anyone who loves books and is interested in the civil rights/BLM-movement.
