by Amber Ruffin and Lacey Lamar
This charming and hilarious sister duo take on the challenging topic of racism. Older sister Lacey Lamar lives in Omaha; her younger sibling Amber left their hometown to become a comedy writer for Late Night with Seth Meyers. Together they share some of the most memorable instances of racism they have encountered in America. The stories are pervasive and horrifying, maddening and in the sisters’ retelling sometimes funny. The sisters’ close relationship and shared sense of humor gives them strength, and led to this remarkable book.
