About this item

From the creator of the award-winning TV series black-ish comes a collection of personal, hilarious, and provocative essays on what it's like to be black in America today.In THIS IS BASIC SH*T, Kenya Barris uses his own personal stories to talk about race and class with the fierceness and humor that fans will recognize from black-ish. It will include stories from his own life-from his family's journey "from ashy to classy" to the roots of his obsession with "crispy" sneakers to life as a father of six kids he refers to as "flies in the buttermilk." Kenya lays bare the battles that black people have with themselves-caught between wanting to blend in (be a good Negro, someone the NAACP would honor with an award) and wanting to affirm their standing as outsiders (be someone BET would do a reality show about). THIS IS BASIC SH*T is an unflinching look at race from an exciting new voice in comedy.
