Publisher's Summary

Is a lion in a cage still king of the jungle? With this seeming riddle, wordsmith, poet, and author Kennyrich creatively and tactfully constructs this unapologetic narrative about the enigmatic African-American race--particularly about what makes this people of infinite potential their own worst enemy and the biggest contributors to what is wrong with black culture in America.

Using his signature writing style, which infuses a seamless blend of poetry and prose, Kennyrich paints a vivid picture that highlights longstanding plagues that continue to afflict black people in the United States today. In truth you may be offended by the controversial words herein, or you may well find yourself in agreement with them. All the same you will ultimately be impacted and perhaps even enriched by the bold and candid perspectives they offer.

    "Goading! Just what I needed to hear and read."
    Would you consider the audio edition of The Black Plagues: United We Stand, Divided We Fall to be better than the print version?

    No, I prefer the print version, made my mind ponder.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Black Plagues: United We Stand, Divided We Fall?

    Hip Hop Poison provides significant questions and solutions to what affects the Black Community. Only if the artists in Hip Hop could realize their influential power, they have to do great things. This whole section is enduring.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Daddy Issues would be my desired scene from the Black Plagues that features women talking about the absence of their father for various reasons located in the Broken Family Chapter.

    "A conversation that needs to be heard!"
    What did you love best about The Black Plagues: United We Stand, Divided We Fall?

    I loved the fact that Kenneth Fomunung did not back away from being open and honest about his views on the black community. He discussed numerous topics that many African-American authors would back away from due to backlash. Very nice piece and new perspectives on an old issue.

    "Tough discussion that need to be had"
    If you could sum up The Black Plagues: United We Stand, Divided We Fall in three words, what would they be?

    Honest. Needed. Impact.


    What other book might you compare The Black Plagues: United We Stand, Divided We Fall to and why?

    Why Are All the Black Kids Sitting Together in the Cafeteria: And Other Conversations About Race because this book tackles some pressing issues in the black community and dares to "go there".


    What does Spencer Bryant bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I really enjoyed his reach, deep, male voice. It added emphases behind the already powerful words.


    Any additional comments?

    This book tackles some of the most pressing issues in the black community. Issues that may offend or hurt, but need to be addressed nonetheless. What I like about this book is that while it dares to "go there" it is handled with caution. It brings food for thought to the table. While this book doesn't necessarily provide answers, this book gives you something to chew on while you consider the message. I definitely think this book brings up topics that are worth discussing in a group setting. Even if you don't agree with the author, I definitely think it is worth examining where you stand on the issues and I think that is the point of this book. To talk about those issues and not ignore these plagues.

    "Insightful and Brilliant"
    Where does The Black Plagues: United We Stand, Divided We Fall rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I usually just buy paperback copies. This is one of the first audiobooks I have listened to, and I, from now on will listen to more, thanks to this book.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Black Plagues: United We Stand, Divided We Fall?

    The presence of fathers and/or father figures, and the issue of abusive parents should be the most memorable for me. And it's not just in America or among Black-Americans but it's sadly, a real worldwide situation that needs serious looking at.


    What about Spencer Bryant’s performance did you like?

    Great audibility in the audio. Proper diction, and it was easy to keep up. A little problem with sound effect, but it was generally good.


    Any additional comments?

    The book is simply brilliant. It brings to light things that without keen attention can be overlooked- important things. I don't live in America, but I could relate to a lot of real issues that were brilliantly expressed by the author.
