Let me start off by thanking everyone for their patience over the last eighteen months. Writing a book while trying to be an engaged parent has to be the most difficult thing I’ve ever done. My text messages have been short, phone calls rare, and Facebook posts infrequent. Many nights, I skipped sleep to reword sentences, restructure paragraphs, and question whether I was skilled enough to complete this task.
My need to get this book out of my system was overwhelming. It picked at my brain, haunted, taunted, and distracted me from focusing my attention elsewhere. I’ll never know what it feels like to be nine months pregnant, but I think I have a good idea. This baby grew to take up massive amounts of internal real estate, slowing my free motion, while kicking me in the gut from the inside. Any media I consumed reminded me I was eating for two: my personal growth and the health of this book. One audiobook and one documentary a week have comprised my diet. I boycotted the NBA, stayed off Yahoo News (as much as I could), and skipped television. Still, sacrificing those things wasn’t as painful as not dedicating my full attention to music. I’m a DJ… I needed to get this baby out of my belly!
I’m happy to announce I Am A Black Man: The Evolution of a Dangerous Negro is finally here. Well, sort of. Pre-orders begin today, with shipping beginning the first week of July. For those that pre-order the book, I will autograph your copy before it is mailed out. Maybe, just maybe, my sloppy signature will add value to your purchase someday 🙂
Though I’m just one Black man, I hope this book will give people new insight on what it’s like to dance with America’s upper and lower crust. More importantly, I hope it will help people to heal, as I have found healing in completing this project. Thank you in advance for your support. I can’t wait to hear your feedback.
I Love You All,
PS – You can
