So I’m browsing through Barnes and Noble and stumble across this book. The title grabbed my attention immediately. After reading the cover, I decided to give it a read. Oh. My. Goodness! I DEVOURED this book! During these trying times for young Black men in America, this book gives a voice to many!
So many things I loved about it. First, I could relate. I didn’t know the author (Mychal Denzel Smith) went to Hampton University (like me). He also was VP of the Political Science Club (ahem, I was President my senior year lol) and he was editor of the Hampton Script! This book is a work I would have dreamed of writing back in my HU days and so much more! Everything from literature politics, social topics, sports, music, and television are signified with such insight and honestly.
I laughed, cried, and mostly said “yes” out loud, in agreement on so many points raised in this book. This is for sure one of my favorite books I’ve read this year. It’s a MUST READ. Invisible Man, Got the Whole World Watching. Invisible Man…I see you.
