Overview

New York Times Bestseller

Baratunde Thurston's comedic memoir chronicles his coming-of-blackness and offers practical advice on everything from "How to Be the Black Friend" to "How to Be the (Next) Black President"--now available in a limited Olive Edition.

Have you ever been called "too black" or "not black enough"?

Have you ever befriended or worked with a black person?

Have you ever heard of black people?

If you answered yes to any of these questions, this book is for you. It is also for anyone who can read, possesses intelligence, loves to laugh, and has ever felt a distance between who they know themselves to be and what the world expects.

Raised by a pro-black, Pan-Afrikan single mother during the crack years of 1980s Washington, DC, and educated at Sidwell Friends School and Harvard University, Baratunde Thurston has more than over thirty years' experience being black. Now, through stories of his politically inspired Nigerian name, the heroics of his hippie mother, the murder of his drug-abusing father, and other revelatory black details, he shares with readers of all colors his wisdom and expertise in how to be black.

"As a black woman, this book helped me realize I'm actually a white man."--Patton Oswalt
