The Annotated African American Folktales - Henry Louis Gates, Maria Tatar

Staff Pick

Mychal Denzel Smith is both urgent and hilarious as he goes from Dave Chapelle to Lebron James, and from male masculinity to the role of the strong black woman deserving more respect. He speaks about mental illness & LGBTQ in the black community, subjects that are considered too taboo to be discussed. But he has the strength and knowledge to raise the discussion about these topics and make you want to hear more. Running a thread throughout about the horrors and struggles of constantly seeing our young black men & women killed by the authorities sworn to protect us, he is yet another amazing voice speaking up. And he needs to be heard.
