NAACP Image Award Finalist

Posted on May 7, 2015

I was very excited when I learned earlier this year that Justice While Black was a finalist for an NAACP Image Award. We didn’t ultimately win, losing out to my good friend Hilary Beard’s excellent and important book, Promises Kept: Raising Black Boys to Succeed in School and In Life, which she wrote with Joe Brewster and Michelle Stephenson (the book actually includes an extended story about me and my son, but she uses an alias so you’ll never know who we are!). But it was nice to be acknowledged for our work on Justice While Black.
