I am the author of five books, including The Divine Nine: The History of African American Fraternities and Sororities and Money Shot: The Wild Nights and Lonely Days Inside the Black Porn Industry. I also write a regular blog for The Root.com, a division of the Washington Post. I attended both the University of California at Berkeley and UCLA School of Theater, Film and Television, with a BA and MFA. I'm a diehard California Golden Bears fan, Los Angeles Lakers fan, Oakland Raiders fan, Manchester United fan...while also rooting for the UCLA Bruins when they're not playing Cal.

I'm also the head of a new sport, The King of Bones, where we take dominoes to a new level.

A Fan Of...
