Touré, writer, cultural critic, and TV personality discusses his newest book Who's Afraid of Post-Blackness: What it Means to be Black Now, which draws on interviews with over 100 prominent African-Americans from art to politics to journalism to academia - as well as his own thoughts and experiences.
Here he reflects on his experience growing up in the Boston area in the turbulent 1970's, and his time in college in Atlanta, providing a springboard for analysis of phenomena such as stereotype threat, micro-aggressions, resume checking, and the white and black gaze.
