Book Review: How to Be Black
What better way to celebrate Black History Month than with a Black reviewing How to Be Black. This book is satirical and autobiographical. The satirical part was way better than the autobiographical. The author is a comedy writer who takes you through the hilarious trials and tribulations of being Black (well, sans slavery and stop and frisk.)
The book is decently funny and a quick read. It's probably more of a conversation starter than anything else. Imagine buying this book for your office's annual Christmas gift exchange?? THAT would make the $21.95 totally worth it!
