CEDAR FALLS, Iowa -- The University of Northern Iowa will host Touré, an American novelist, cultural critic and T.V. personality, at 7 p.m., Wednesday, April 11, in the Center for Multicultural Center (CME) on the UNI campus.

Touré will lecture on his book "Who's Afraid of Post-Blackness?: What It Means to Be Black Now." The book explains what it means to be black in America and explains the concept of "post-blackness" as an artist who is proud to be black, but doesn't want to be limited by identity politics and race.

A book club session on "Who's Afraid of Post-Blackness?: What It Means to Be Black Now" will be held prior to the lecture from 3:30 to 5 p.m., in the CME.
