Who's Afraid of Post-Blackness?
What It Means to Be Black Now
Inspired by a president who is unlike any Black man ever seen on our national stage, we are searching for new ways of understanding Blackness. Touré begins by examining the concept of “Post-Blackness,” a term that defines artists who are proud to be Black but don’t want to be limited by identity politics and boxed in by race. In Who’s Afraid of Post-Blackness? he argues that Blackness is infinite, that any identity imaginable is Black, and that all expressions of Blackness are legitimate.
Featuring the thought-provoking opinions of 105 of the most important luminaries of our time—including Jesse Jackson, Malcolm Gladwell, Cornel West, Henry Louis Gates, Jr., Soledad O’Brien, Paul Mooney, Melissa Harris-Perry, Greg Tate, Zadie Smith, Dave Chappelle, Aaron McGruder, and many others—Who’s Afraid of Post-Blackness delivers a clarion call on race in America and how we can change our perceptions for a better future.
