Kendi.  In the letter, he invites Ibram to have a public conversation on Conversations with Coleman. As you know, we are living through a time in which great attention is being paid to the related issues of race, racism, and racial inequality. Even though their perspectives on these issues differ, a conversation between Coleman and Ibram would be fruitful.
