"I absolutely felt Cole Brown’s words in my gut. His voice is unapologetic, introspective, powerful, and conscious, yet comforting. The way Cole addresses his understanding of 'privilege,' whether white or black, is grounded in transparency and wit. So vivid are the blurred lines of identity. And though he may feel gray, I felt very Black, and at one with Cole on his journey in navigating the world as an African American."
