When Marita Golden decided to write her personal account of the challenges of raising a black son in today’s world, she didn’t intend to write more than her own family’s story. But through the story of raising her son against the backdrop of a racially divided society, Golden discovered she was also confronting the causes of the violence that surrounds African-American men.
In the fierecely lyrical and revealing narrative of Saving Our Sons, she has created a work of profound and lasting importance?one that sensitively and uniquely addresses the problems of boyhood and emerging manhood. It is a book that issues a clarion call: The survival of our cities, if not our society, depends on our finding a way to save our sons.
