    LOVED this book wish it had been around when my son was young but now I'm sending a copy to my grandson Also bought two extra copies to donate to my local library as I'm not sure they have it on their shelves and I think it's important to be as widely available as possible

    Dear Black Boy by Martellus Bennett is a love letter to Black BoysWe are than our bodies Our worth extends beyond a football field basketball court or baseball stadiumWe can be than athletesOur life is worth than a Hail Mary passBlack Boys can be leaders at the fore of societyBlack Boys must honor the past and forge a future for the next generationDoctors lawyers judges entrepreneurs poets activists journalists husbands fathers sonsThe writing juxtapositioned with the visuals of Black Boys running a race to freedom is a conversational piece There is even a scene where one of the runners puts on wings and flies breaking a glass ceiling Along with Boy getting nourishment from fruit at the top of the tree not the BOTTOM Catch these messagesFavorite uote The low hanging fruit is what the world prefers you to reach for but we must climb the tree Climb higher and you will discover that the fruit at the top is sweeter than Kool Aid

    The message was clear The illustrations were modern and appropriateWritten for young black boys and men for moms with sons who want better for their children when they grow into men not to settle for the stereotypical careers and educational trajectories
