Overview

"My son is my hero."

The long-awaited follow-up from the author of "Pass The Torch: How A Young Black Father Challenges the Deadbeat Dad Stereotype", "Speak II Me" takes an honest and unflinching look at a man whose dreams of having a son carry on his name take an unexpected turn when he learns his child is on the Autism spectrum.

Initially paralyzed by denial and fear of what having a child with a disability would mean for his legacy, Jamiyl has to move past his personal feelings to become a father who is more aware of, and accepts, the challenges that lie ahead in order to save his son's life.
