Who's Afraid of Post-Blackness?

What It Means to Be Black Now

Foreword by: Michael Eric Dyson
In this provocative book, writer and cultural critic Touré 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.
