Timely, poignant, and brutally honest, the "boy" book is a literary platform comprised of the voices of black mothers. Gwen Carr, the mother of Eric Garner and the "I Can't Breathe Movement" penned a prolific articulation of black mothers' plight in America. The reality of raising, protecting and defending black sons is horrifically overwhelming; but the mothers included in this compelling literary work have rawly and unapologetically released their experiences and emotions. The "boy" book provokes soul searching, accountability, and sustainable action. Sherilyn Bennett, the compiling author, mother of two sons, and the CEO of Camden Lane Creative Agency along with 50 black moms across the U.S. have put the megaphone to their mouths and they refuse to be ignored.
