Baratunde Thurston - How to Be Black (Location: Sidwell Friends School)

Thursday, March 8, 2012 at 7:00 pm
The social critic, comedian, and digital director at The Onion grew up in Washington, DC, graduated from Sidwell Friends School, and went on to earn a philosophy degree from Harvard. His funny, poignant insights into race, politics, technology, and modern culture have provoked, inspired, and entertained audiences around the world. How to Be Black, part memoir and part satirical guide to racial issues, has been called “humorous, intelligent, and audacious.”

This event is free and open to the public. Seating will be on a first-come, first-serve basis. Doors will open at 6 p.m. Free parking is available in the school garage on the main campus at 3825 Wisconsin Avenue in the District.

Books are available by purchasing here or by calling Politics & Prose at 202-364-1919. Books will also be available at the event and, if pre-purchased online, may be picked up at Will Call on the evening of the event at Sidwell Friends.
