If you read and loved Ta-Nahisi Coates' *Between the World and Me*, *Invisible Man* is a must read. Where Coates interrogates race in America via an open letter to his son, Smith approaches it by asking himself how he learned to be a black man in America. He uses his own experiences to fuel a reckoning that moves like lightning and pulls no punches.
It's also relentlessly intersectional, drawing in the work of bell hooks and considering questions like why we've so quickly forgotten the names of gay black men who've been murdered. *Invisible Man, Got the Whole World Watching* is essential reading for anyone interested social justice in North America.
