Phillips speaks powerfully about the topic of life as a conservative African-American actor, husband, father, and citizen. In today’s political climate, with race such an issue, this collection of essays is not only timely, but thought provoking.Like Democratic candidate for President Barack Obama, Phillips has had his authenticity as a black man questioned by members of his own race, for trivial reasons such as the way he speaks, his choices in music, politics, faith, and family. Also like Obama, Phillips has often been accused of not being “black enough,” while, as an actor, he has encountered even more pointing fingers for not being liberal enough. With a frank voice, this brilliant and outspoken author presents a series of witty and provocative essays that examine life as a conservative African-American, and the simple fact that authenticity is far more complicated than one’s choice of words.
