I was very impressed with this book. It is true that black males have extra pressures in life, more so in education. There is a great amount of Black History that goes unnoticed which could serve as confidence builders to these young black males. This is a great book. Books with these topics must be read by both males and females, another book which serves the same purpose is Why do I have to be your Nigger? 'Theories in Niggativity.' Both of these books could be classics.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
