Ninana,
I have finally finished the book. There were some very moving and emotional scenes in the book. I found it powerful, your ability to express the in utero experience of the unborn. Thank you for your insight. The courage you have shown in your life is to be commended. Keep up the wonderful commitment and compassion you have for the work that you do.

hey.....
If you want to read a book that you can not put down even if you wanted too, then this is it. Dr. Niinana Kweku is an amazing author who captures the essence of his characters and breathes life into ever fiber of their being. You will be absolutely blown away at the detail and complexity that each character has and also you will be able to relate to each one because of this unique way that has when he writes. Imagine yourself watching a movie and you can almost feel the vibes that makes your hair stand up on the back of your neck, well Dr. Kweku captures these senses and emotions and releases them in a tidal wave of words and sentences that will send you reeling and wondering into another space and time. What a wonderful read. Oh by the way and one of my best friends. He is a delightful and genuine man. Dr. Kweku is a blessing to all who have the pleasure of meeting him and he is a wonderful and well rounded, honest and caring individual. I am honored to say that I know him and blessed by his influence. I am proud of his accomplishments. Get the book, read it and reread it. this book aids in the construction of more holistic and progressive notions of African-American manhood. Proceeding from a psychological perspective, it explores issues of culture and race and how they impact the cognitive, emotional, and behavioral characteristics of African-American boys and men. It also shows how the development of self-esteem and self-image in African-American men are specifically affected by issues of gender, race, culture, religion, and oppression. Manhood Development covers theories, research, and intervention programs aimed at better understanding and addressing the challenges young African-American men face in urban areas. It explores the role of culture in the social development of African-American youths; cluster profiles of racial socialization beliefs, giving special consideration to such factors as spiritual/religious coping, extended family care, cultural pride reinforcement, and racial awareness; oppression and socio political development as a basis for interventions aimed at socio political awareness and action; a review of manhood and womanhood development in traditional African societies and the connection with contemporary development; and other topics best in anyone's collection of books. Without giving anything away, I'll say that this book is about friendships at both their best and their worst, love known and unrealized and the search for both. It will leave the reader both pondering what they think about both love and friendship and often leaving them with their mouths open with the drama which ensues. It will cause the reader to rethink the idea of manhood and perhaps open his or her mind to what true manhood is. always my friend VICTOR
