Your Call: A conversation with W. Kamau Bell about comedy, race and politics

May 8, 2017

We’ll have a conversation with Kamau Bell, a critically acclaimed socio-political comedian about his new book The Awkward Thoughts of W. Kamau Bell.

It’s a humorous take on the world today, tackling a wide range of issues, including race relations; fatherhood; the state of law enforcement today; comedians and superheroes; right-wing politics; left-wing politics; failure; his interracial marriage; white men; and his up-bringing by very strong-willed, race-conscious, yet ideologically opposite parents.
