Combining powerful personal narrative with short essays by renowned Black leaders in philanthropy, racial justice, education, policy and more, I Too Am America delivers timely insights and inspiration that humanizes the stories of Black men and boys, while offering strategic recommendations on how, together, we can overcome current rumblings with America’s racial reckoning to loving, learning and leading with and on behalf of Black men and boys. I Too Am America: On Loving and Leading Black Men & Boys is now on sale at all major book retailers – including Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Good Reads, and Bookshop.
