With a compassionate eloquence reminiscent of James Baldwin's Letter to My Nephew, Ellis Cose presents a realistic examination of the challenges facing black men in modern America.Black men have never had more opportunity for success than todayyet, as bestselling author Cose puts it, "e;We are watching the largest group of black males in history stumbling through life with a ball and chain."e; Add to that the ravages of police brutality, murder, poverty, illiteracy, and the widening gap separating the black "e;elite"e; from the "e;underclass,"e; and the result is a paralyzing pessimism. But even as Cose acknowledges the systemic obstacles that confront black men, he refuses to accept them as reasons for giving up; instead he rails against the destructive attitude that has made academic achievement a source of shame instead of pride in many black communitiesand outlines steps black males can take to enhance their odds for success. With insightful anecdotes about a broad range of black men from all walks of life, Cose delivers a warning of the vast tragedy that is wasted black potential, and a call to arms that can enable black men to reclaim their destiny in America.
