You can't touch my hair

You can't touch my hair: and other things I still have to explain / Phoebe Robinson, 317 pgs.

Phoebe Robinson is a stand up comedian and actress.  She has a LOT of stuff to tell us about being a black woman beginning with the fact that you are not allowed to touch her hair.  But there are a lot of other things too.  She is honest about so many things, her love of U2 and the ranking of each band member in her own personal desirability scale, her requests and advice for the first female president and some of the experiences as a POC in "show business." Social commentary, pop culture, and personal memoir are all expertly handled by Phoebe.  I listened to the audio book which is read by the author.  Very entertaining.
