SURE, I'LL BE YOUR BLACK FRIEND Notes From the Other Side of the Fist Bump

by | Read by James Fouhey

Contemporary Culture • 8.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2021

James Fouhey narrates this witty, perceptive collection of essays from writer and professor Ben Philippe, who was born in Haiti, was raised in Montreal, and currently resides in New York City. Philippe's conversational memoir discusses his experiences in diverse cultures navigating cultural divides. Speaking to white audiences as their new Black friend--or boyfriend, student, son, or colleague--Fouhey and Philippe combine humor and honesty, addressing larger issues through the lens of individually lived experiences. In doing so, they confront listeners with painful truths and crucial conversations on race in America. While memoirs are frequently read by their authors, Fouhey's wry, direct tones are a perfect match for Philippe's style. His impassioned delivery adds to the power of this collection.
