Who's Afraid of Post-Blackness?: What It Means to Be Black Now Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A provocative look at what it means to be Black today. It includes excerpts from over 100 interviews with Rev. Jesse Jackson, Cornel West, Skip Gates, Melissa Harris-Perry, Kara Walker, Kehinde Wiley, Glenn Ligon, Malcolm Gladwell, Paul Mooney, NY Gov David Paterson, Harold Ford, Jr., Soledad O'Brien, Kamala Harris, Chuck D, Questlove and others. A memoir of the racist and racial incidents that have shaped Touré's life. An examination of Chappelle's Show and its brilliant way of playing with and skewering racial politics (informed by interviews with all of the major creative members of the show including Chappelle). And a trip through the modern Black art world focused on the work of Kara Walker, Kehinde Wiley, Glenn Ligon, William Pope.L, and Rashid Johnson.

Synopsis:

From Jesse Jackson to Questlove, 100 Black Americans talk Blackness with Touré.
