BETWEEN THE WORLD AND ME
November 21, 2020  | By David Bianculli

HBO, 8:00 p.m. ET

 
SPECIAL PREMIERE: This new TV version of Ta-Nehisi Coates’ book about race and racism expands the concept of the stage play, which employed several voices to read from, and bring to life, the vibrant viewpoints in Coates’ book. The play premiered at the Apollo Theater in Harlem – a perfect launching pad – and this new HBO version, potentially reaching millions on its HBO and HBO Max platforms, injects its Between the World and Me with even more star power. Phylicia Rashad, Courtney B. Vance, Angela Davis (yes, that Angela Davis) and Oprah Winfrey (yes, that Oprah Winfrey) are among the participants reciting Coates’ words and warnings.
