Smith’s memoir starts with him trying to answer the question of how he defines himself as a black man in America. He finds his college years at Hampton University during Obama’s first race to the presidency help him answer this question. These years of his life causes him to evaluate respectability politics, homophobia, sexism, transphobia, and the taboo of mental health in the black community that have caused him to redefine what masculinity means to him. His memoir doesn’t only ask questions of himself, but will also leave the reader asking questions of how they define their identity as well.
