REACH: 40 Black Men Speak...


REACH makes the case for a new narrative about Black men in America. Research by co-editors Ben Jealous and Trabien Shorter found that 11 out of 12 Black men in America ages 15 and older finish high school; 7 out of 8 are not teenage fathers; 3 out of 4 don't do drugs, and one-third attend college. UHS wanted to be among the first to trumpet the success of this New York Times bestseller, which more than delivers on the promise of a timely collection of personal essays from celebrated black men like the Rev. Al Sharpton, John Legend, John Hope Bryant, Van Jones, Isiah Thomas, Louis Gossett, Jr., and Talib Kweli. Better still, proceeds from the sale of REACH ($15 list price) support BMe Community, a nonprofit dedicated to building caring and prosperous communities inspired by black men.
