We Were Eight Years in Power: An American Tragedy by Ta-Nehisi Coates | Book Summary | Abbey Beathan

(Disclaimer: This is NOT the original book. If you’re looking for the original book, search this link:

Ta-Nehisi Coates delivers his provoking view on race in America, the presidency of Barak Obama and everything it affected.

We Were Eight Years in Power provides us with the author’s overview over the eight years of the Obama presidency and how white supremacy during the Obama era helped Donald Trump become president.   

(Note: This summary is wholly written and published by Abbey Beathan. It is not affiliated with the original author in any way)

“In those days I imagined racism as a tumor that could be isolated and removed from the body of America, not as a pervasive system both native and essential to that body. From that perspective, it seemed possible that the success of one man really could alter history, or even end it.” – Ta-Nehisi Coates

History has a tendency of repeating itself. As Coates notices, the American experiment in multiracial democracy which ended with the return of white supremacist rule in the South has a chilling resemblance to election of Donald Trump following the election of the first black president in the history of the United States of America. He examines the effects of the nation’s unresolved history, combined with the movement and ideas which are a result of Obama’s election.

Ta-Nehisi Coates reflects on the hopes that the election of the first black president brought and the crushing realization that one man cannot change the course of an entire nation.

P.S. We Were Eight Years in Power analyzes the eight years of presidency of the first black president and the cultural and political landscape this created.

It was Bill Gates who said that he would want the ability to read faster if he could only have one superpower in this world.
