FUNNEL CAKE FLOWERS & THE URBAN CHAMELEONS highlights real life stories of code switchers, people who seamlessly transition from white America to their kinky hair taming– coco butter wearing– tipping up the courthouse steps in Manolo Blahniks to bail cousin Pookie out of jail—America. With her uniquely hilarious, deadpan style, Funnel Cake Flowers reveals the truth and complexity behind why Urban Chameleons…chameleon. Click here to watch a preview of Funnel Cake Flowers in action. She will rock your world!
