Publisher's Summary

Is the black man who sends his children to a very white private school "a sell out"? Is the black man with a good job and a white wife, a "race betrayer"? The nameless black narrator has done all the above, dragging himself from an impoverished urban ghetto to an upper-middle-class life. He has done everything to assimilate into polite white English society, playing strictly by "their rules". As he attends a polo match with "society's finest"; his mask is slipping; cracks are beginning to appear in his apparently perfect life. Has all the sacrifice been worthwhile?

The Last Black Man is an emotional journey into fear of failure, of desperately trying to fit in, and what it means to be successful, black, and male in contemporary England.

Thank you!!

Well done! I will be sharing my views with others that I come across! So very important for our youth! Although this was about 44 minutes long it came across as so very powerful! Again, well done!
