Reach: 40 Black Men Speak on Living, Leading, and Succeeding

By Benjamin Jealous, Trabian Shorters
A "New York Times" and "Washington Post" Bestseller
In this timely and important collection of personal essays, black men from all walks of life share their inspiring stories and ultimately how each, in his own way, became a source of hope for his community and country.
"Reach" includes forty first-person accounts from well-known men like the Rev. Al Sharpton, John Legend, Isiah Thomas, Bill T. Jones, Louis Gossett, Jr., and Talib Kweli, alongside influential community organizers, businessmen, religious leaders, philanthropists, and educators. These remarkable individuals are living proof that black men are as committed as ever to ensuring a better world for themselves and for others.
Powerful and indispensable to our ongoing cultural dialogue, "Reach" explodes myths about black men by providing rare, candid, and deeply personal insights into their lives. It s a blueprint for better community engagement. It s an essential resource for communities everywhere.
Proceeds from the sale of "Reach" will go to BMe Community, a nonprofit organization dedicated to building caring and prosperous communities inspired by black men. "Reach" is also a Project of the Kapor Center for Social Impact, one of the founding supporters of President Obama s My Brother s Keeper initiative."

"As Ben Jealous says in his introduction to "Reach," 'We cannot imitate that which we have never seen, heard, or read about' and I am grateful for these powerful stories showing us all the kinds of leaders our Black boys can grow up to be."--Marian Wright Edelman, President, Children's Defense Fund"
"Reach is more than a collection of individual stories. At its core it's a book about choices, about how each one of us has the option to live a life with meaning and purpose."--Ilyasah Shabazz, author of X: A Novel, Malcolm Little, and Growing Up X
