From the dust jacket: "Writing about everything from ‘How it feels to be a problem’ to relationships between fathers and sons, these men reveal to us both great courage and an amazing love for each other and themselves. In a stunning tribute to a centuries-old brotherhood of heroes, Black men come together to challenge America finally to see them as individuals, to hear their long-silenced voices — to speak their names.”.
