'Lincoln' and Coming Attractions

Guys, I just wanted you to know that there will be more responses to the film--thought not entirely by me--coming this week. For the Civil War/slavery folks among the Horde this is excellent news. For those who want to talk about Guild Wars 2 (which I played for the first time last night--me and the boy) not so much. Though I will talk a bit about GW2.


Anyway, good stuff that I think a lot of you will be interested in. Stay tuned. I think this is an important moment in the realm of Civil War memory. And contrary to some others, I think the film warrants every bit of attention its getting.

Ta-Nehisi Coates is a national correspondent at The Atlantic, where he writes about culture, politics, and social issues. He is the author of the memoir The Beautiful Struggle.
