More About Who's Afraid of Post-Blackness? by Toure; Michael Eric Dyson
 
 
 
Overview
Now in paperback, "one of the most acutely observed accounts of what it is like to be young, Black, and middle-class in contemporary America...told in a distinctive voice that is often humorous...but always intensely engaging" (Orlando Patterson, The New York Times).
In this provocative book, writer and cultural critic Toure explores the concept of Post-Blackness: the ability for someone to be rooted in but not restricted by their race. Drawing on his own experiences and those of 105 luminaries, he argues that racial identity should be understood as fluid, complex, and self-determined.
