Tanner Colby engages in a public conversation about his new book, Some of My Best Friends Are Black, with Kansas City writer Whitney Terrell. Colby’s book about race is anchored by four interrelated stories, one of which involves a Kansas City neighborhood.
A child of a white-flight Southern suburb, Colby is former head writer of the National Lampoon Radio Hour and co-author of Belushi: A Biography.
