Who's afraid of post-blackness? : what it means to be Black now by Touré( Book )
11 editions published between 2011 and 2012 in English and held by 1,076 libraries worldwide
In the age of Obama, racial attitudes have become more complicated and nuanced than ever before. Inspired by a president who is unlike any Black man ever seen on our national stage, we are searching for new ways of understanding Blackness. In this book, the author, a commentator and journalist tackles what it means to be Black in America today. He begins by examining the concept of "Post-Blackness," a term that defines artists who are proud to be Black but don't want to be limited by identity politics and boxed in by race. He soon discovers that the desire to be rooted in but not constrained by Blackness is everywhere. In this book he argues that Blackness is infinite, that any identity imaginable is Black, and that all expressions of Blackness are legitimate. -- From the publsher

Never drank the Kool-Aid : essays by Touré( Book )
5 editions published between 2006 and 2013 in English and held by 376 libraries worldwide
His name is Toure, just Toure, and like many of the musicians, athletes, and celebrities he's profiled, he has affected the way that we think about culture in America. He has profiled Eminem, 50 Cent, and Alicia Keys for the cover of Rolling Stone. He's played high stakes poker with Jay Z and basketball with Prince and Wynton Marsalis. In Toure's world, Dale Earnhardt, Jr. sits beside Condoleezza Rice who sits beside hip-hop pioneer Tupac Shakur, and all of them are fascinating company. This book is the chronicle of Toure's unparalleled journey through the American funhouse called pop culture. Its rooms are filled with creative, arrogant, kind, ordinary, and extraordinary people, most of whom happen to be famous. It is Toure's gift to be able to see through the artifice of their world and understand the genuine motivations behind their achievements, to see who they truly are as people. This is a searingly funny, surprisingly unguarded and deeply insightful look at a world few of us comprehend

I would die 4 u : why Prince became an icon by Touré( Sound Recording )
1 edition published in 2016 in English and held by 4 libraries worldwide
Prince's baby boomer status allowed him to play a wise older brother to the latchkey kids of Generation X. Defying traditional categories of race, gender, and sexuality, he nonetheless presented a very traditional conception of religion and God in his music. He was an MTV megastar and a religious evangelist, using images of sex and profanity to invite us into a musical conversation about the healing power of God. By demystifying the man and his music, I Would Die 4 U shows us how Prince defined a generation
