Publisher's Summary

An NAACP Image Award nominee, The Black Male Handbook is an impassioned call to end the problems facing today's Black men. Author and activist Kevin Powell offers insights on steering away from violence and toward a more responsible manhood. A new climate is rising in the Black community. Despite a shared thirst for cutting-edge opportunities and fresh directions, today's hiphop generation is still plagued by many long-standing problems. But with guidance from these inspiring essays, the modern Black male can rise above the political, cultural, and spiritual struggles opposing him to thrive against all odds. Featured prominently on The Oprah Winfrey Show, Powell and his book offer welcome guidance to all Black men - and the women who love them. Narrators Ezra Knight, Kevin R. Free, and Avery Glymph each turn in compelling performances, capturing every facet of this important work.

honesty should of been called "treat women better"

a majority of the book talks about treating women better, equal rights for woman, how women struggle because of men, women are abused by hurt men, women need our support, women are basically always right. to much emphasis on women but overall it's a book worth listening too.

A must-read for Black men!

Very well written! I'm going to have my son read it, even though he's just a teenager. This book, along with our discussions on the topics, will prepare him to live successfully as a young Black man in America.

Something for everyone!

I truly wish I’d known about this book sooner!

Amazing book that covers everything from relationships with the opposite sex, to health, and how you present yourself to the world as a black man.

Give it a listen you won’t regret it!

Excellent!

Excellent book. It should be a required reading for all races. This will lead to better understanding and the reconciling of races.
