Oakland, CA - The Book Tour for 'The Awkward Thoughts of W. Kamau Bell'

  • Starline Social Club 645 West Grand Avenue Oakland, CA, 94612 United States (map)

'The Awkward Thoughts of W. Kamau Bell' will be a humorous, well-informed take on the world today, tackling a wide range of evergreen issues, such as race relations; fatherhood; the state of law enforcement today; comedians and superheroes; right-wing politics; failure; his interracial marriage; his upbringing by very strong-willed, race-conscious, yet ideologically opposite parents; his early days struggling to find his comedic voice, then his later days struggling to find his comedic voice; why he never seemed to fit in with the Black comedy scene . . . or the white comedy scene; how he was a Black nerd way before that became a thing; how it took his wife and an East Bay lesbian to teach him that racism and sexism often walk hand in hand; and much, much more.

Tickets include a copy of the book, provided by Mrs. Dalloway's. GET YOUR TICKETS HERE.
