Summary
"For over thirty years Haki R. Madhubuti has lead the national conversation on Black male empowerment and healing for our community. Taking Bullets : terrorism and Black life in twenty-first century America continues that conversation with a new urgency for the lives and survival of a new generation of Black men and boys who are confronted with much of the same disparity and adversity on the streets of every city in America. Madhubuti speaks directly to these young men with an empathic understanding of their plight, yet he sees hope and a vision for their future. He wants them to see this same hope and vision for themselves. In Taking Bullets, he also challenges community leaders, educators, and all of those individuals who directly impact the lives of our young men to develop sustained strategies to confront and challenge the systematic problems of police violence, mass incarceration and economic disparity"--Provided by publisher
