REVIEWS OF BBP POEMS
I am happy to call this author my friend
I am happy to call this author my friend. He is an extremely caring and compassionate young man who is out in the community really working to make a difference in the course of Black Lives. He also happens to be a teacher and an excellent writer. This book is well worth reading and sharing.
A must read
Insightful. Well written. Commanding. This book provides a first person account of surviving as a Black man in America. Tyson did a masterful job of truth-telling, providing historical context and adding a contemporary lens by connecting his poetry.
Great for black boys
Had my son read this book when he got in trouble, thinking it was a book of poems. This was actually about the life of a young black man growing up in the bay area. It really resonated with my 12 year old and he got a great perspective. I recomend this book to people from all ages. Very well written and inspiring
