Ta-Nehisi Coates’ new book remains a gross guesswork for everyone; a mystery around the subject it discusses. Even when the author of Between The World And Me had shared the cover of the new book titled We Were Eight Years in Power and qouted Kendrick Lamar’s “Yah”: “I got so many theories and doubt.” This was Coates’ tweet about his new book. None yet is able to unravel the theme of Coates. No date has been picked for the release of the book, but from the title let’s put our mind to work.

Could Coates be digging into Obama’s eight years of world leadership? Or narrating the plight of the blacks even with the ascendancy of the first black in a country built on the sweats of slavery? Or a creative dribble on theories of politics of colour in America? Oh yeah, we are still almost there. But until the book is published one cannot truly touch Coates in every way and unlearn our doubts.
Just last week, he was selected to write screenplay for Ryan Coogler and Michael B. Jordan collaboration on the Wrong Answer.
