New York Times Bestseller - One of Time's Top 10 Non-Fiction Books of the Year - One of USA Today's Top 10 Books of the Year - A New York Times Notable Book

In these urgently relevant essays, the award-winning author of Between the World and Me reflects on race, Barack Obama's presidency and its jarring aftermath, including the election of Donald Trump. We Were Eight Years in Power examines the new voices, ideas, and movements for justice that emerged over this period and the effects of the persistent, haunting shadow of our nation's old and unreconciled history. Coates powerfully examines the events of the Obama era from the intimate and revealing perspective of a young writer who begins his journey in an unemployment office in Harlem and ends it in the Oval Office, interviewing a president.

Ta-Nehisi Coates is a national correspondent for The Atlantic. His book Between the World and Me won the National Book Award in 2015.
