Essays and interviews focused on the lived experience of black men in the United States, how they grew up, how they find meaning and value. The range of speakers runs from men struggling to get by to those who are highly successful and articulate. An honest and successful attempt to present a range of views. I found it valuable and would recommend it highly. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0253332591, Hardcover)

"The book is a gripping litany of sermon, scripture, and spirituality. It is strident and unembarrassed by its message, urgent in its delivery, somewhat daunting in the tenets it proposes, and clear in its mission." —Black Issues Book Review

"... an important book that offers useful insights into the lives and times of black men everywhere..." —West Africa

"Black Men Speaking... provides in its diverse range of black, male voices an antidote for the silence that hindered them for so long." —Washington Post Book World

"... important reading for Blacks and whites, men and women, young and old." —Gazette Newspaper Group

"A must-read book for all" —The Recorder, Indianapolis, IN

Editors Charles Johnson (whose Middle Passage won the National Book Award) and John McCluskey, Jr. have gathered the voices of 11 African-American men in this volume—to tell us how they see themselves and other black males in America today. Contributors include Don Belton, Joseph W. Scott, and Peter J. Harris.
