Luvvie Ajayi wears many hats: Comedian. Activist. Pop culture blogger. And now she adds her lifelong dream of being an author to her many roles. Leaving Nigeria at a young age to come to Chicago with her family, Ajayi faced issues with identity, culture and race—all of which she’s used to fuel her comedic work and bring light to a common experience.

She talks with the Morning Shift about her new book I’m Judging You, where she tackles topics from “oversharing on social media” to social justice.
