We Fish

The Journey to Fatherhood

Shows us that of all the bridges that boys must cross to manhood, there is none so sturdy as the love of family. This book is a warm, soulful journey back to where so many successful black men came from and a guide to where so many troubled young black men need to be.
Bebe Moore Campbell, author of What You Owe Me

We Fish is the tale of a father and son's shared dialogue in poetry and in prose, memoir and reflection, as they delight in their time spent fishing while considering the universal challenge of raising good children. Their story and their lesson have the power to teach today's young African American men about friendship, family, and trust; and the potential to save a generation from the dangers of the modern world and from themselves.
