You’ll Never Believe What Happened to Lacey: Crazy Stories about Racism

book jacket

The stories shared by comedian Amber Ruffin and her sister Lacey Lamar are hilarious and heartbreaking, unbelievable and yet unsurprising. Their personal and professional experiences and those of their parents demonstrate systemic racism experienced from Omaha to Chicago and New York City. Yes, this book is funny. More importantly, it provides valuable insight on the experiences of Black women in modern America–the daily injustices, the casual ignorance, and the obstacles faced.

I highly recommend listening to You’ll Never Believe What Happened to Lacey (2021) for the nuance and engaging delivery—you’ll laugh and cringe along with Amber’s retelling of absurd events.
