Iconic Journalist & Culture Critic

Touré engages audiences with thought-provoking social commentary on modern racism, politics, media and culture, and the true meaning of a post-racial society.

Touré is not only a force to be reckoned with in the world of music and pop-cultural reporting, but a highly sought-after commentator on American politics. He was the co-host of MSNBC’s ensemble show The Cycle, and is the current co-host of the People/Entertainment Weekly Network show, Bingeworthy.

From the pages of Rolling Stone, to columns on and as a professor at NYU’s Clive Davis Institute of Recorded Music, Touré’s various and diverse roles throughout his career have provided him with a unique perspective that has made him a leading voice on social, cultural and political issues. Also the author of the acclaimed books Who's Afraid of Post-Blackness? and I Would Die 4 U: Why Prince Became an Icon, he has been called "a one-man media conglomerate" by Newsweek editor Tina Brown.

With candid humor, cultural expertise, and a healthy dose of irreverence, Touré enlightens with profound insights on everything from the media, hip-hop and pop stardom to politics, the economy and racism in America.
