A Better Man
A Better Man A (mostly Serious) Letter to My Son By Black, Michael Ian Book - 2020

Wow! What an eloquent letter Black has written to his son about the attributes of masculinity. Black may be best known for his comedy, but the questions he poses in this book are not. Why are boys falling behind girls academically? How can we teach boys to respect girls? Why are young black men turning guns on others and on themselves? I love his use of the adjective “quiet” to describe manhood. According to him, the three most difficult words for a male to say are “I need help.” I am not sure why he included the information on the suffragette movement and abolition. I guess it could be a conversation started, but the rest was so good this was not needed.
