Men We Cherish: African-American Women Praise the Men in Their Lives

One evening in 1994, writer Brooke Stephens was listening to the news while working on a tribute to her grandfather for an upcoming family reunion. The evening's newscast began with three negative reports about black men--as rapists, muggers and murderers. The contrast between the black men on the news and the black man she was writing about suddenly seemed enormous. Where were the black men she knew? Stephens wondered. Why were they never featured...

Every Afro-American should read this book!

Who ever had this idea to praise our black men, should get a billion dollars and then some. With so much negativity in the media about AA males, this book is a definate home run for the trillion brothas who are good men as well as good lovers. I really enjoyed this book and can relate to most if not all of the women (sistahs)on loving a black man. Its not always easy, but it is definately worth it. More power to my AA Brothas! ;-)I love yall

Every Afro-American person should read this book...

I've really enjoyed all that I've read so far. Most of these men are in my family. They're my counsins, uncles, brothers, fathers, etc. I'm glad that there's a voice for the unsung heros who are not shown on the 10:00 clock news. not only is Brooke Stephens a financial wizard, but she's a sistah for real....

Amazingly touching and heartfelt writing!

At first I thought this would be a "feel good fantasy" short-story type of book by some sisters talking about what they wished for in a man, but this was anything but a fantasy. They are all true, too life men I could relate to as apart of my life. It was overwhelming to read this and get into the various kinds of men presented here in their all to human-ness which is desperately needed as we look around us. The media offers no positive, supportive role models but this book shows what we all know: that there are some good and decent black men out there that should be given their "props" --- this book does just that. Every African-American home, especially where there are young black boys around should have a copy of this book.

This book is a 'must read' for all black men and women!

I was very pleased at the wide range of stories from brothers to lovers to the handy man that never let you down. I read the book in a week and 1/2-I just couldn't put it down! It keeps you interested because of it's realness and it also makes you think about other ways in which to look at things, people and situations that life always presents. FANTASTIC! goes out to Brooke Stephens and the many authors that contributed. I'll probably read it again!!!

A Must!

This anthology of wonderful writings is a must for any bookshelf. I applaud Ms. Stephens for letting the world know that there is more to Black men than what is fed to the world in the media. This collection of non-fiction, written by a diverse group of 34 Black women, speaks to the truth and heart of Black men across America.
