Description:

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 Toure'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.

Quotes:

Toure candidly tackles a burning issue confronting us today. Black America is undeniably a community 'free, but not equal,' and people from all walks of life are compelled to devise new approaches to confronting today's structural inequalities. Here Toure explores insights from many perspectives to help guide the way., Jesse L. Jackson, Sr.

A 2011 notable book. ...one of the most acutely observed accounts of what it is like to be young, black and middle-class in contemporary America. Toure inventively draws on a range of evidence...for a performance carried through with unsparing honesty, in a distinctive voice that is often humorous...always intensely engaging., New York Times

...powerful...A likely bellwether for America's future struggles with race., Kirkus

A compelling book in the age of Obama..., Booklist

Author and narrator Toure...delivers a powerful reading that is at once emotional yet unbiased. His delivery is smooth and focused...manages to create a magnum opus that will resonate for decades to come.
