    Based on the 2018 adaptation and staging of Ta-Nehisi Coates' book at the Apollo Theater, this HBO Special features powerful readings from the book with documentary and archival footage, and animation. Focusing on the author's experiences growing up in inner-city Baltimore, the narrative explores Coates' bold notion that American society structurally supports white supremacy.
