Online columnist and blogger Patrice Evans, who goes by the witty pseudonym the Assimilated Negro, delves into the modern-day black condition in his new book, Negropedia: The Assimilated Negro's Crash Course on the Modern Black Experience. On the surface, Negropedia seems like a humorous collection of cultural banter and contemporary critique. But after deep thought, and a few laughs, the reader is introduced to a unique illustration of contemporary black life in a not-so-post-racial world.

Evans' Negropedia, which, according to the cover, is "suitable for all melanin levels," is now available.
