Chris Rock Is Writing a Book on Race & Relationships


Another celeb is about to add his voice to the discussions of race right now: Chris Rock. The New York Times reports the former Saturday Night Live star will publish a book that addresses race and relationships in Fall 2020. My First Black Boyfriend will feature a collection of essays by the actor/comedian. Publisher Celadon did not make Rock available for an interview with the Times, but senior vice president and co-publisher Deb Futter said, "A lot of celebrities write books, and they don't always have something to say. I think Chris Rock has something to say." She added that his essays "point out things that maybe need to be pointed out in our crazy world."
