Black Men and Intimacy – Voices From Across the Diaspora by Therez Fleetwood explores the complexities of relationships through the minds of Black men in the 21st century. She says she spent hundreds of hours having one-on-one conversations with 50+ Black men from ages 20 to 70, who gave no holds barred answers to intimate questions that are seldom discussed in relationships.

“One of the toughest things about being a Black male is that it's rare to find people who understand us. Black men, young and old, have been characterized by society's interpretation of who we are. This book debunks those stereotypes.” -- Isaiah, age 35

Black Men and Intimacy – Voices From Across the Diaspora captures the vivid personalities and poignant personal stories of five generations of Black men from all walks of life and various occupations. It is an impactful, emotional, uplifting, and inspiring compilation of personal interviews that provide insight into Black men's thoughts about love, relationships, communication, sex, intimacy, and much more. Black men have passionate triggers to love just as much as women do and they express their love in ways that are unique to them.

Help Save Black Men From Prostate Cancer

The Prostate Health Education Network (PHEN) is launching its "Prostate Cancer Disparity Rally" to address the growing prostate cancer crisis in Black America caused by the COVID-19 pandemic and the dramatic increase in new prostate cancer cases.

Prostate cancer is the leading cause of cancer and the second leading cause of cancer deaths for Black men in the U.S. The disease also has the largest racial disparity for any type of cancer for men or women. The American Cancer Society recently released estimates that new cases of prostate cancer will increase by 30% in 2021.

This is more than ten times the increase for any other major cancer including lung, breast, and colorectal. "We are facing an unprecedented prostate cancer crisis in this country and Black men will be hit the hardest," says Thomas Farrington, PHEN Founder and President. “Our Disparity Rally will raise prostate cancer awareness throughout Black America, and provide educational resources and tools to help alleviate disparities in early detection, treatments, and clinical trials.”

The Prostate Cancer Disparity Rally will kick-off in Washington, DC, Maryland, and Virginia and expand nationwide throughout 2021. The Rally will include an awareness campaign with members of the U. S. Congressional Black Caucus, doctors, clergy, patients, and other leaders raising their voices through public service announcements that will be part of an integrated media outreach effort.

In Black Men and Intimacy – Voices From Across The Diaspora, Therez interviewed men on everything from: What is intimacy to (Black) men? How do (Black) men feel about marriage? What are (Black) men afraid of in relationships? And, do (Black) men want feedback in the bedroom? Black men also share their thought about sex and sexual pleasure, the types of women they find attractive, and the state of Black relationships.

Black Men and Intimacy – Voices From Across the Diaspora is not a theoretical analysis of Black men overall, nor is it written to stereotype or categorize them in any way. Instead, it provides a porthole for Black men to express themselves freely as they discuss issues that are real and prevalent in their lives and their relationships.

According to Therez, “I wanted to archive and preserve the intimate lives of Black men for future generations. It's important for Black women, and other Black men, to hear their stories when it comes to understanding the intimate and emotional lives of Black men. I think this is where our healing as a community begins, by having conversations that allow us to cultivate more emotional, intellectual, and physical intimacy.” The questions asked in this book are probing and the answers are direct. Whether you are married or single, female or male, this book will open up a pathway to conversation and exploration.

Harold Phifer has announced the publication of his second book, a collection of autobiographical short stories exploring his sad and often appalling upbringing in Columbus, Mississippi.  Kept secret for more than 50 years, Phifer’s childhood was largely forgotten until an explosion during a job in Afghanistan forced him to take some time off to recover in a paradise beach resort in Thailand.

While there, he met an unusual but compassionate stranger who pulled him into a long discussion about his experiences growing up. Hours later, Phifer finally found a measure of peace from the ghosts of his past and began planning out the stories that would later appear in Surviving Chaos. The book is available for purchase via AmazonBarnes & Noble, and Audible.  For More Info Click Here
