PBS examines blackness expert Baratunde Thurston, finds him "totally unpretentious, candid young man"

Some ledes just write themselves. Sorry PBS.

In addition to The Big Bang Theory's Mayim Bialik and one of the first ten employees of Facebook, Kevin Colleran, Baratunde, author of the best selling "How to Be Black" and digital editor of The Onion, will be part of a stellar IdeaFestival 2012 cast.

The full participant lineup will be released on May 15 when All-Access Passes for the festival, September 19 - 22, go on sale.

I hope to see you at the IdeaFestival!
