    Beyond memoir, this guidebook offers practical advice on everything from "How to Be the Black Friend" to "How to Be the (Next) Black President" to "How to Celebrate Black History Month". This is a humorous, intelligent, and audacious guide that challenges and satirizes the so-called experts, purists, and racists who purport to speak for all black people. With honest storytelling and biting wit, Baratunde plots a path not just to blackness, but one open to anyone interested in simply "how to be".

    Story

    Just as there is no one way to describe blackness, there is not one way to describe this book. I laughed, I learned, I saw myself, I saw others, I was horrified and I was inspired. The closest one word description I can come up with is liberating. I highly recommend the audio version. Baratunde's command of pace, and his spot-on comedic timing allow him to delivery serious messages along with side splitting laughs.
