Overview

Family Affair: What It Means to be African American Today by Gil L. Robertson IV

It’s no secret that the African American community is in crisis. From health disparities and political injustice to crime statistics and a variety of social ills, it is a community teetering on the edge. Through personal stories and essays, Family Affair addresses this imbalance, offering insight on issues and topics that the majority of African Americans only talk about in secret. The goal: to stimulate dialogue that supports reflection, healing, and understanding. Family Affair comprises five sections representing the key features that influence the African American identity: History, Politics, Behavior, Beliefs, and Self-evaluation. The book showcases a wide cross-section of contributors representing various elements of the black community. Each section features at least one religious leader and one institutional leader, as well as many celebrities from the worlds of music and broadcasting, along with ordinary people with extraordinary stories.
