The Black Plagues: United We Stand, Divided We Fall

"Is a lion in a cage still king of the jungle?"With this seeming riddle, wordsmith and poet Kennyrich creatively navigates this unapologetic narrative about the enigmatic African-American race and the perception of us in historical and contemporary American society. Notably, he explores what factors contribute to making this population of infinite potential America's public enemy No. 1, and what roles (if any) we play in fueling the fires of fear. More importantly, he explores what we can do ourselves to change this dynamic and create a better future for our and future generations of Black Americans.Using his signature writing style, which infuses a seamless blend of poetry and prose, Kennyrich paints a vivid picture that highlights longstanding plagues that continue to afflict black people in the United States today. In truth, you may be offended by some of the controversial words herein, or you may well find yourself in agreement with them. All the same, you will ultimately be impacted and perhaps even enriched by the bold and candid perspectives they offer on race relations in 21st century America.
