Overview

"What's goin' down? I know you don't expect a seventy-five year old man to talk all that talk. . . "

A strong and much needed book addressing black youth today, Preaching for Black Self-Esteem is geared to a generation of black men and women who can--suggests the authors--proudly face issues such as caste systems, one's own physical characteristics, feelings of ambivalence and inferiority, and even 'buppies'--economically upwardly mobile Blacks.

A very powerful collection of sermons for a generation of Blacks coming of age after the Civil Rights era.
