You Can Now Preorder Jenifer Lewis’ Memoir

Jennifer Lewis Memoir

Hollywood’s favorite mom and everyone’s favorite auntie in their head is about to have us torn between our TVs and her memoir. Jenifer Lewis‘ (most recently splitting our sides as Black-ish‘s Ruby Johnson) fittingly-titled book The Mother of Black Hollywood: A Memoir is now available for preorder via Amazon and Barnes & Noble. It is widely known, though often forgotten, that Lewis isn’t just a successful onscreen actress. After starting out as a theater actress on Broadway, her performance artistry went on to grace the music-vocal world. And with her bold confidence, spunky demeanor and always hilarious (but refreshingly real) candor combined, we already know we’ll be in love with the versions of stories she’ll share about her time maneuvering these industries.

The Mother of Black Hollywood officially releases November 14, 2017. So cancel all your plans because when you’re not watching Black-ish or its Yara Shahidi-starring spinoff Grown-ish, you’ll likely be immersed in the pages that narrate a glimpse into the life of one of today’s most beloved icons. Watch Jenifer Lewis announce her book’s preorder availability below (it’s hilarious, but you already knew that).
