“Raising Black Boys to Men: A Mother’s Guide to Raising Thugless Sons” is a candid book of one mother’s journey: her successes, trials, and errors, in raising her three boys, in a society that glorifies thug-life. Author, Patricia Joseph, who successfully navigated the lives of her three sons, through the ever so present negative influences in society, felt compelled to write about her experience in raising thugless sons. Patricia credits much of her success to just “good, ole-fashion child rearing.” All readers will enjoy the heart-felt emotion of Patricia’s call-to-action: “Save Our Sons.”

As I write this insight, I know that there is a Black mother somewhere crying over the death of her son -- a son lost to a senseless crime
Why must we lose so many young, men and cry so many tears!!
Raising Black Boys to Men
The senseless deaths, of many young, Black men air daily on local and national news. Hiding behind those news stories are mothers, in agony, with hearts ripped apart, from losing a child. On many urban streets across America, these mothers cry out in pain, holding the lifeless bodies of their sons, who have become victims of another senseless crime.
