With special guest commentator Michael Eric Dyson.
Touré’s newest 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 the Fuse-TV shows Hip Hop Shop and On the Record. A contributing editor at Rolling Stone, his articles appear regularly in publications such as the New York Times, Village Voice, and the New Yorker.
