Black Buck by Mateo Askaripour

Darren is pretty content with the way things are. The commute from Bed-Stuy to Manhattan for his Starbucks gig isn’t bad, his girlfriend is great, and his mom doesn’t give him too hard a time about making something of his life. But when a high-up CEO takes notice of Darren when picking up his morning coffee, Darren gets more than he bargained for, including being renamed “Buck” without much say in the matter. After climbing the start-up ranks, a crisis at home forces Buck to take a good, hard
look at his life, his work, and in his role as the only Black person in his company. He decides to take matters into his own hands and look toward home and other people of color for solutions to the broken system he’s helping perpetuate.
Come along for the ride in Askaripour’s exploration of race, corporate culture, and what it means to achieve “the dream” and still not feel fulfilled. This is a fast-paced, satirical look at an even faster paced and troublesome culture that will keep you turning the page.
