About this title


"The book is a gripping litany of sermon, scripture, and spirituality. It is strident and unembarrassed by its message, urgent in its delivery, somewhat daunting in the tenets it proposes, and clear in its mission." —Black Issues Book Review

"... an important book that offers useful insights into the lives and times of black men everywhere..." —West Africa

"Black Men Speaking... provides in its diverse range of black, male voices an antidote for the silence that hindered them for so long." —Washington Post Book World

"... important reading for Blacks and whites, men and women, young and old." —Gazette Newspaper Group

"A must-read book for all" —The Recorder, Indianapolis, IN
