2017-11-29T04:30:15.000ZTook me just five days to knock out @JeniferLewis’s memoir, “The Mother of Black Hollywood.” A fierce, honest, provocative, FUNNY AS HELL, book! I AM NOT a fan of audio book, but I’m tempted to get this just to hear her tell these stories in her voice! #rolandsbookclub – source
