Sure I’ll Be Your Black Friend by Ben Philippe (release date April 27, 2021)
From the press release: In an era in which “I have many black friends” is often a medal of Wokeness, Ben hilariously chronicles the experience of being on the receiving end of those fist bumps. He takes readers through his immigrant childhood, from wanting nothing more than friends to sit with at lunch, to his awkward teenage years, to adulthood. Extremely timely, Sure, I’ll Be Your Black Friend is a conversational take on topics both light and heavy, universal and deeply personal, which reveals incisive truths about the need for connection in everyone. Ms. Robertson recommends Ben Philippe as a witty, hilarious writer who uses humor to make heart-rending points about race.
