About this title


''As I continue to navigate life as a mature man, I wonder: With all my efforts, am I truly leaving a vital legacy for the next male generation? Should I, could I do more? Or is my influence running out of strength and time? I'm just one man. Then again, so was my grandfather. So are millions of men throughout our land--grandfathers, fathers, uncles, brothers. Did my grandfather concern himself with how well he was succeeding as a man, as a father, as a grandfather? Perhaps he lacked the luxury of introspection about the quality of his role in his family and in his community. Perhaps he was simply too busy being. I regret that I never asked him.''

Bill Roddy's musings surely will resonate with many men. Deeply felt and honestly written, Manhood From The Hood shares a poignant story of one boy's journey to manhood, and of the grandfather who, along the way, never let him forget he was loved. is family and in his community.
