book reviews

Black Boys Don't Speak is about a boy turned man who set out to discover his identity, the history of his life, his reason for being and what the future holds. That boy is me.


Have you ever felt like you were living a lie? Like somethings just don't quite make sense? I have. Have you ever had so much to say, so much going on, on the inside of you and no way to let it out? No one to hear you out? I have. Have you experienced what seems like drama after drama, tragedy after tragedy and somehow you're still standing? I have too. 


This is my real life. What you will read is my real, raw thoughts and expression. My opinion. All I really want to do is help free my brothers. I'll start by freeing myself because when Black Boys Don't Speak, black boys don't speak. May my life be an inspiration to you. Peace and love

An excellent inspirational read for kids and adults. This book has several important messages about having a voice, being honest and speaking out, and many more issues that we face. One of the biggest issues kids face is not being able to discover their identity and not using their voice, which we need to reinforce this message to our kids, especially during their developmental years.

Black Boys Don't Speak starts with me wanting to know the ending as soon as I read a chapter but I didn't go there. I'm not finished reading it yet but enough to give an honest review. It can teach us all, boys, girls and adults, that need to know, that it's ok to ask how we came to be apart of this world, where we fit in. I personally still need to know, so it really hit home for me and touched my heart. There's a lifetime of internalizing trauma and it's mentally draining. I'm finding out it's not just in the black communities, that keep secrets and ppl are still keeping their children in the dark from knowing where they came from, their heritage, and such.. WHY?!? It should be an open book and I'm glad that the Author broke the mold and wrote it so those who read it won't think twice and will pass the word on, so black boys and girls will start speaking up. It's a good read and although I haven't finished, I have already recommended that it be read! Great Book JG!
