    If you could sum up Who's Afraid of Post-Blackness in three words, what would they be?

    Interesting, provocative and deep.


    What about Touré’s performance did you like?

    He is unmistakingly recognizable and his personality shines through. He is really passionate about the subject and he moves the book along at a really good pace.


    Any additional comments?

    I had heard an interview with Touré on the Canadian Arts & Culture show Q with Jian Gomeshi and was intrigued.This book has made me think about and question how I define myself and see others as well as how they see me. It has given me insight into why I often feel wary and uncomfortable, even frustrated when there seems to be an incongruence. I've been thinking about and discussing with friends, family and co-workers the ideas he raises in the book in the weeks since. Great read. Hopefully this is obvious but it is not just a book for blacks but everyone.
    BTW I was also really excited to find it on Audible. You really are
