Who's Afraid of Post-Blackness?
There is language some may find offensive.
Toure explores what it means to be African-American in the United States today. For his book the author spoke with over 100 African Americans from Cornel West and Henry Louis Gates Jr. to Chuck D and Malcolm Gladwell as he examined race, identity, politics, and the concept of “post-blackness.” Toure read from his book and was interviewed on stage by Jonathan Capehart. He also responded to questions from members of the audience at the 14th & V Street Busboys and Poets in Washington, D.C. The event was co-sponsored by Teaching for Change.
