I Am The Darker Brother gives the reader an in-depth view of what life is like for Black kids at predominantly white colleges! It reaches beyond the stereotypes, and doesn't insult readers or African-Americans by giving a one-dimensional portrayal of Black males! It also proves that a novel can be under 250 pages and still speak volumes about the issue it was meant to address!! Kudos to Eugene Williams, Jr!
