Author - Coates, Ta-Nehisi

Birth: September 30, 1975.

Death: Still alive and writing brutally incisive essays for The Atlantic.

Comments: Ta-Nehisi Coates is an American journalist and author, best known for his work with the Atlantic, but also for his books The Beautiful Struggle and Between the World and Me. Coates attended Howard University, but left before graduating to pursue a career in journalism. Before working at The Atlantic, Coates worked for a number of other publications including Philadelphia Weekly, The Village Voice, and Time. Coates has also written guest pieces for the New York Times, the Washington Post, and Washington Monthly.

In the genre fiction world, Coates is best known for his run writing the Black Panther series titled A Nation Under Our Feet. He also wrote a relatively short-lived companion series titled Black Panther and the Crew which was unceremoniously cancelled after only six issues.

Coates writes the blog Absurd Beats. He can also be found on Twitter. In addition, The Atlantic maintains a page of all of the articles Coates has written for the publication.
