New pages from the follow up to Lawrence Lindell’s self-empowering, black skin-loving picture book, ‘From Black Boy With Love: Part I’! ‘Part II’ is a thoughtful and uplifting collection of affirmations for black and brown boys aimed at instilling a sense of worthiness and self-love in a world committed to tearing down black men and women.
“This book is for all the boys of color who feel pressured to fit in and be something you’re not. We are not savages, we are not thugs, we are love and life. Too often we are forced into these macho hyper masculine roles and are not really taught to express our feelings properly. We are never really allowed to feel, especially as boys of color,” says writer/creator Lawrence Lindell.
