Beginning with his upbringing in Washington, D.C., Bartunde shares stories of his journey and how his mother’s mantra, “question authority,” was a big influence on his career path. From working at comedy behemoths like “The Onion” and “The Daily Show” to becoming a New York Times best-selling author with his memoir, “How to Be Black”, Baratunde details his dedication to exploring some of society’s more complex issues.
