You Matter. You Make a Difference. You are Invited to Answer The Call.
Faced with the devastation of racism that is still alive and well in this day and age, and the infected scab that was ripped off of unhealed racial wounds with the election of our nation’s first black president, our community is desperately calling out for help. This book, "The C.A.L.L.: Inspiring Stories For Young Men About Character, Accountability, Love, And Leadership", issues a clarion call to our young black men to stand up, step up and recognize their inherent greatness.
Dr. Towanna Freeman, the mother of a young son, was harshly jolted by the tragic death of Trayvon Martin in Florida. She felt compelled to address the unique challenges facing young black men. To inspire hope and send forth a message of encouragement and affirmation, she issued a call-to-action to her network of male mentors, motivational speakers, business professionals, coaches and community leaders to share personal stories capturing the rich tapestry of their life lessons, experiences and wisdom. The stories in "The C.A.L.L." reflect the struggles, challenges, resiliency and triumphs that uniquely make up a part of the black male’s journey in this country.
This collection of short stories reflect the diverse facets of the life of a black male - rural, suburban and urban; single-parent, two-parent and no-parent households; rich and poor. It contains real life stories of coming into an understanding of identity, integrity, values, manhood, wise decision-making, persistence, reflection, course correction, and learning from consequences.
This compelling book is written from the hearts of black men, with the hope that their personal stories will inspire and transform the lives and futures of young black men worldwide.

THE CALL is one of those most insightful books out in the market. We don't get many instances where men are encouraged to share their stories and in this book, they do just that. Not only do they tell us the real, but they also leave us with a feeling of hope and inspiration. Young men everywhere will know that if these man did it, so can they! Get your copy and get a copy for every young man and teen you know. Help change a life! EXCELLENT BOOK!
A volume of collaborative voices from African American men who are business and civic leaders but most of all every day men with powerful stories to tell and teach. It is a book very much needed for young African American males and those tasked with raising them in today's challenging times. Dr. Towanna Freeman is to be saluted for her vision for this work, and the 17 co-authors who caught the vision and made it come to life.
It was inspiring I learned a great deal from the book! I recommended it!
