National bestselling author, Daniel Whyte III, is releasing the 10th anniversary edition of Letters to Young Black Men: Advice and Encouragement for a Difficult Journey. The book is an Essence Magazine, Dallas Morning News, and Amazon.com national bestseller. The 10th anniversary edition includes a new introduction from the author, a new foreword by the author’s sons, Daniel Whyte IV and Danyel Ezekiel Whyte, as well as new resources.
Letters to Young Black Men was actually written from numerous historically black colleges, such as Tuskegee, Morehouse and North Carolina A&T from the very heart of a black Christian minister, who has himself faced all of the perils and problems young black men face today.
In the new foreword, the author’s sons write, “Letters to Young Black Men is just as relevant today as it was when my father wrote it and when it was published ten years ago. This is only because the principles expounded in it are based on the Bible, God’s wisdom, and tried and true experiences. Even though this book is unashamedly based on the Bible, many young black men—some who have not stepped foot inside a church since childhood—have claimed it as a guide, a second father of sorts. The numerous accolades that this book has received from mothers, fathers, church leaders, aunts, uncles, and concerned citizens is a testament that the guide to life laid out in this book actually works.”
In his new introduction, Daniel Whyte III shares a secret about how God led him to write this perennial, national bestseller. He says, “The first thing you may not know is that I started writing this book when I was in my twenties. I know it sounds as if it was written by an older man to younger men or like a father writing to a son. However, it was written by a young black man who had experienced and was experiencing many of the things young black men have to deal with in this great country called America.You may ask, ‘How did you pull that off?’ Well, in truth, I didn’t pull anything off. It may sound a bit sanctimonious, but God deserves all of the credit for the writing and publication of this book. He gave me the wisdom, knowledge, and insight to give the book that older-man-to-younger-man vibe. All of the glory belongs to Him, and I really mean that.”
The 10th anniversary edition of Letters to Young Black Men will be released on the first day of Black History Month, Wednesday, February 1, 2017. It is available for pre-order now on Amazon.com and Amazon Kindle.
