“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 a believer in the existence and power of God, I believe that all things are possible!
Not too long ago, we may have asked the question: "What has happened to our Black youth?" But, today we are seeing our youth take to the streets to declare that "Black Lives Matter."
I strongly believe that God has a way of moving mountains (racism, injustice, police brutality) by touching the hearts and minds of those that we least expect, and empowering them to achieve the impossible!
Raising Black Boys to Men
A belief in a higher power gives us humility, and a desire to strive towards improvement. This spirituality helps us recognize our weakness and imperfections, and seek strength and direction from a power greater than ourselves.
