@ Busboys and Poets 14th & V: Phoebe Robinson - You Can't Touch My Hair: And Other Things I Still Have to Explain

Upcoming Event
Monday, October 24, 2016 - 6:30pm to 7:30pm

In her pointed, funny, and devastatingly smart essays, Robinson, creator and co-star of WNYC’s 2 Dope Queens and Sooo Many White Guys, former staff writer for MTV’s Girl Code, and an Essence and Esquire “comedian to watch,” lets rip about the racial biases that influence everything from casting decisions to assumptions about musical taste. Giving her no holds barred “takes on race, gender, and pop culture,“ Robinson guides readers through the experience of shopping while black, spotlights both the absurdity and the offensiveness of casual racism, talks about shows, stars, and the media, and offers a future woman president a few tips.
