A great book. It provides a vivid description of the many ways that the lives of black men in the United States are compromised by forces beyond their control. But there is a nagging thought that personal responsibility has been totally lost in the telling of this story.

A memoir from a woman who has lost 5 men in her life due to social conditions pertaining to poverty and racism. A social commentary that will stir you up. I thought this was very good.
