Description



Raising
Black Teen Boys in Turbulent
Times

"It is always heartening to
see women step up to the writer's table. When the results are as adroit and
affecting as Marita Golden's work, it is more than satisfying; it is a cause
for celebration."--Toni Morrison, Nobel
Laureate

Two decades ago, Marita was the first Black
writer to address the horrifying statistic that haunts all Black mothers: the
leading cause of death among Black males under twenty-one is homicide. Today, police
brutality rages on as millions call for the reformation of our broken law
enforcement in the wake of the traumatic murders of Black teen boys like
Trayvon Martin, Michael Brown and Daunte
Wright.

Read an intimate account
of a mother's efforts to save her son.
Writing her son's story
against the backdrop of a society plagued by systemic racism, economic
inequality, and mass incarceration, Golden offers a form of witness and
testimony in a time of crisis for Black Americans.

Learn
how to grapple with the realities of Black America.
Join Golden as
she confronts the root causes of violence inflicted upon Black teen boys and
reassesses the legacy of her own generation's struggle for civil
rights. Explore Black boys' difficult road to adulthood in the U.S.
and learn why single Black mothers are often wrongly blamed for their sons'
actions.

Gain invaluable advice and knowledge from
trustworthy sources.
In Saving Our Sons, Golden
documents her conversations with psychologists, writers, and young Black males
themselves.

This book is designed to help
you:

  • Discuss and unpack
    generational trauma with loved ones
  • Gain deeper insight
    into the injustices Black children face in the
    U.S.
  • Recognize the importance of community for the success
    of Black teen boys
