About the author:
MaNishtana is a blogger, screenwriter, and filmmaker who is trying to use his work to make the world--both Jewish and secular--a better place for Jews of Color (or "JOCs"). While he doesn't think he's nearly active or influential enough to claim the title of Jew of Color "activist", he proudly declares himself a JOC "advocate".
Born into an Orthodox, formerly Chabad-Lubavitch, African-American Jewish family, MaNishtana's traceable American familial ties to Judaism reach back a span of more than two centuries--all the while remaining African-American.
His unique, humorous, and often irreverent outlook on Judaism, race politics, and racial issues within Judaism and without--illustrated through his blogs and videos--have gained popularity through mentions by The New York Times, New York Magazine, The Jerusalem Report, and Moment Magazine, as well as earning him inclusion in The Jewish Week's 36 Under 36 for 2014. His speaking engagements have included A Taste of Limmud NY, Birthright Israel NEXT, Boston University, University of Kentucky, and the Eliezer Society at Yale.
However, despite the popularity his blunt declarations garner, MaNishtana eagerly looks forward to the day when he has nothing left to say. Until then, he can be reached at email@example.com.
"Fine, thanks. How are you, Jewish?"
A Stream-Of-Consciousness Stroll Through the Jew of Color Mind
In his newest book, MaNishtana (author of Thoughts From A Unicorn:
100% Black.100% Jewish. 0% Safe.) charts a frank journey through the mind of Jews of Color of various stripes and shades as they wade through the sometimes hilarious, sometimes infuriating, and occasionally neurotic slog of their daily lives.
And your coffee table will never be safe again.
