If you are awarded a grammy, you are considered to be the best artist among your peers. The problem is, the Grammys is a white-dominated organization and while it has long "included" non-white people, specifically Black people in the music business, the industry continues to support, promote and reward music that is harmful to black people in general and black women and girls specifically.

The Context of White Supremacy hosts the debut study session on Ta-Nehisi Coates highly celebrated publication, Between The World And Me. This 2015 text won the National Book Award for nonfiction and was on President Obama’s summer reading list. In addition to the accolades for the book, he also nabbed a 2015 MacArthur Genius Award and continues to generate commentary on his 2014 essay on reparations. Coates’ work was published early in response to Dylann Roof’s Terrorist attack in South Carolina. Coates describes this text as a letter to his black child, a candid conversation on White Supremacy and the systemic plunder and rape of black bodies.
