Ta-Nehisi Coates’ ascendancy carries the hallmarks of a Horatio Alger tale.  With his 2015 recognition as a MacArthur Genius and a National Book Award winner, his rise from humble beginnings to illustrious acclaim acquired a nearly storybook sheen.  A “rags to riches” account of his success holds immense charm; however, such an explanation does not offer a full picture of his significance.  Coates’ path from brief attendance at Howard University to star blogger, renowned Atlantic feature reporter, and worldwide phenomenon intersects with fascinating developments in 21st century literature and intellectual history.  Unfolding in a post-9/11 world, his career limns several trends in contemporary culture, chief among them the democratization of blac

The broadcast of the miniseries adaptation of Alex Haley’s Roots, which aired in January of 1977, became a ratings bonanza, a cultural touchstone, and a defining moment in the representation of African Americans in popular media. 40 years later, the impact of Alex Haley’s novel and the ABC miniseries continues to be felt, most notably in the recent History Channel “reboot” of the miniseries, but also in less obvious but more profound ways.
