About this Item

163 p. Illustrations. Luther Brown and his wife divorced when their children, Nikki and Marshall were four and five. "I read every book I could find about the process of child rearing, about my own psychological fitness for parenting alone" he writes. "In all that I read, I never once encountered a story by an African-American father" Now the Washington, DC-based black television newscaster writes about the lessons and cherished moments surrounding a divorced father raising his two children. Will they handle the trauma of having divorced parents? How does he equip them with the essentials for becoming contributing members of society? Scene after scene, Luther Brown's personal narrative weaves the reader through an inspiring series of challenges he faces. There's no preaching. And Brown hasn't written a how-to. He merely retells the scenes. They are laughable, disturbing, but mostly tender.all leading to the portrait of a father's raising his best friends. Very good. No dust jacket as issued. Signed by author. Bookseller Inventory # 62174

About this title


Divorced with two children ages four and five, television news producer Luther Brown decides to take custody of his son and daughter. Presenting a series of stories and anecdotes, he shows how one African-American father reared two children, how they were equipped with the essentials for becoming contributing members of society, and how through it all, they became and remain best friends. There's no preaching here; nor is it a how-to tome. It is instead the poignant recounting of scenes from the life of a loving father and his kids.
