What Being Black Is, and What Being Black Isn't

by Jacob Whittingham and Biscuit
£9.99   paperback  Hansib Publications Limited (2010)

What Being Black Is, and What Being Black Isn Currently, the most powerful man in the world is Barack Obama and the most powerful woman in the world, according to many in the media industry, is Oprah Winfrey.
 
For the first time, being black and successful isn't just about being good at singing, dancing or running. Yet there is a flipside: in the UK, around 70 per cent of teenagers murdered are black and half of all black families are headed by a single parent.
 
Biscuit and Whittingham here take a bold, fresh and honest look at the problems and achievements of the black community in Britain and the very definition of being black.
