Description

30 black, white and biracial contributors celebrate the black body's dramatic role in culture. Award-winning actors, poets, comedians, filmmakers and journalists come together to offer their perspectives on a fascinating and fundamental question - what does it mean to have, or love, a black body? Ranging from the deeply serious to the playful, these essays explore desire, old age, obesity, sex, hunger and parenting with passionate wisdom and a deep sense of history.
