Publisher's Summary

An NAACP Image Award nominee, The Black Male Handbook is an impassioned call to end the problems facing today's Black men. Author and activist Kevin Powell offers insights on steering away from violence and toward a more responsible manhood. A new climate is rising in the Black community. Despite a shared thirst for cutting-edge opportunities and fresh directions, today's hiphop generation is still plagued by many long-standing problems. But with guidance from these inspiring essays, the modern Black male can rise above the political, cultural, and spiritual struggles opposing him to thrive against all odds. Featured prominently on The Oprah Winfrey Show, Powell and his book offer welcome guidance to all Black men - and the women who love them. Narrators Ezra Knight, Kevin R. Free, and Avery Glymph each turn in compelling performances, capturing every facet of this important work.

Do NOT read this book!

Listen to it...on Audible. The soothing and compassionate black voices establishing or in some case reestablishing principals is likened to that of a mentor or father figure preparing you to take on the world. An experience that far too many of us missed out on. Download audible today, first book is free! 🦉📚🤜🏿🤛🏾🙅🏾‍♂️
