On todays episode of While Black we sit down with Nic Stone author of the New York Times best seller "Dear Martin".  For any of our long time listeners you have heard Vince mention this book many times.  

Nic shares details on her upcoming projects (DOPE BOOKS AHEAD) and shines light on the political and racial high school world that Justyce, Manny, SJ, and Jared on share and navigate inside of Dear Martin  

If you are a young black teen or the parent of a young black teen we HIGHLY SUGGEST that you get close to this book.  I promise it will open up the worlds of politics and race in high school for you in a way you may not have expected.

Here is a quick synopsis on the book and please go follow Nic on IG: @nicstone and dont forget to get social with While Black - IG: WHILE_BLACK; TWITTER @whileblackpc; FB @whileblackpodcast or email: whileblackpodcast@gmail.com 

Synopsis:

Nic Stone's Dear Martin tells the story of an Ivy League-bound African-American student named Justyce who becomes a victim of racial profiling. He struggles to reconcile the fact that he's a "good kid" with suddenly being in police handcuffs. In the months that follow, Justyce confronts injustices and micro-aggressions he experiences at his mostly white prep school and the fallout from his brief detainment.
