There is so much information in the media and the popular literature about the negative stereotypes of Black men. We are inundated with news reports and entertainment images of the classic stud, the thug, and the jock. But what about the hundreds of thousands of Black men who DEFY the stereotypes and are not dangerous, deviant or dumb? This book is about those Black men who are iconoclastic; those who take care of their children, become upstanding members of society, and have depth and sincerity. If you are one of them, want to know about them, are raising one of them, or just need a fresh look, this is a necessary read for you.
