"This compassionate and comprehensive handbook helps boys make the difficult transition into men by showing parents, teachers, counselors, and community members how they can: Foster a positive racial identity; promote sexual responsibility; overcome negative influences of hip-hop and 'hoop dreams;' advocate for their sons' education; and counter the problems of racial profiling, drugs, and gangs."
Also available as an eBook.
