Who's Afraid of Post-Blackness?

Who's Afraid of Post-Blackness? Talking About Race with Toure and DysonTalking About Race, an ongoing series co-sponsored by the Open Society Institute-Baltimore and the Pratt Library 

Talking About Race OSI series logoTouré's newest provocative book, Who's Afraid of Post-Blackness? What It Means to Be Black Now, was acclaimed by the New York Times as "one of the most acutely observed accounts of what it is like to be young, black and middle-class in contemporary America." Benjamin Jealous, President and CEO of the NAACP, calls the book "a fascinating conversation among some of America's most brilliant and insightful Black thinkers candidly exploring Black identity in America today. Touré powerfully captures the pain and dissonance of Black Americans' far too often unrequited love for our great nation."

Touré is a cultural critic for MSNBC, as well as the host of a couple of shows on Fuse-TV: "Hip Hop Shop" and "On the Record." A contributing editor at Rolling Stone, his articles appear regularly in publications ranging from the New York Times to the Village Voice to the New Yorker.

Michael Eric Dyson, University Professor of Sociology at Georgetown University, wrote the foreward to Toure's book.
