BARATUNDE & ELON JAMES WHITE LIVE FROM BROOKLYN 2.20.13
This Week in Blackness: How to be Black
Humorists Baratunde Thurston and Elon James White share the stage for a night of comedy. Thurston is the author of How to be Black, which charts his over 30 years of being black, from his pro-black, Pan-Afrikan single mother who raised him during the crack years of 1980s Washington, DC, to his elite education at Sidwell Friends School and Harvard University. Elon James White is a comedian, writer and creator of the award-winning web series “This Week in Blackness”, a satirical look at race, politics and pop-culture in a so-called “post-racial” America and the award winning podcast “TWiB Radio!”.
This event is part of Brooklyn Public Library’s celebration of Black History Month.
