In Pursuit of My Inalienable Right
Come celebrate a pathbreaking new angle on the lives of African American men ... As Pharrell’s “Happy” becomes an irresistible global soundtrack, President Obama pledges to be My Brother’s Keeper, and foundations invest millions of dollars into programs for Black men, The Black Man of Happiness: In Pursuit of My ‘Unalienable Right’ is a jazzy journal & unprecedented meditation that ranges in scope from Thomas Jefferson’s era to the Digital Age in search of the answer to the simple, startling question, What is a happy Black man?
Powerful, poetic essays explore one man's journey from childhood in Southeast D.C. to adulthood as a nationally published writer, educator, and respected cultural worker in LA.
