It used to be that we could turn to family and friends for guidance on how to exist in the world. But these days, such help is harder to come by. "What Black Men should Do Now" fills this need, by offering practical, straightforward advice for every black man who seeks a fulfilling, successful life. The book nurtures both mind and spirit, providing words that inspire reflection, and a call to action.

From health, religion and education to relationships, family and career, the book runs the gamut of information necessary for every man today -- whether 18 or 80. Readers will find out why they should become mentors, how to deal with anger, ways to truly love a woman, how to respect their bodies, the importance of being in touch with Spirit, and much more.

Each topic in "What Black Men Should do Now" is introduced with quotes, anecdotes, and words of encouragement and affirmation, followed by bulleted actions that can be put to immediate use. By the time he finishes the last page of this remarkably candid, inspirational guide, the reader will have all the tools he needs to be the best man he can be.
