A Black Man’s Point of View: Mind, Body, and Soul from the Voices of Black Men

A Black Man’s Point of View: Mind, Body, and Soul from the Voices of Black Men

James Cooley unpacks his thoughts on the challenges that many Black men face due to their ancestors being taken away from their homeland over 400 years ago and forced into slavery and colonization.

Based on history, his experiences, and trying to adjust to being treated like a second-class citizen because of the color of his skin, Cooley highlights how that affects his vision, understanding, and focus in life. This impacts many areas of a Black man’s life, including self-worth and the ability to love, trust, and forgive.

He also discusses the stereotypes that many Black men face today based on the labels society has given them and how many Black men move forward despite this. Most importantly, he conveys that all men, regardless of race, creed, or color, are capable of love, respect, and dignity.

With ten contributing authors, Black men discuss their perspectives, how they feel and adjust to the past and present norms, and how they have overcome adversities and continue to do so.
