Summary "Right out of college, Justin Simien wrote a screenplay about the nuanced experiences of four black students on a predominantly white college campus ... Channeling the sensibility of the film into this book, Simien will keep you laughing with his humorous observations if you haven't seen the satiric film, [including quizzes to determine whether you've become the Token Black Friend]"
