New York, NY – The Collaborative Experience is currently compiling a collection stories by African American male authors entitled, “Our Stories Our Voices: Black Men Speak Their Truth” (OSOV), which is set to debut in February 2020 for Black History Month.
The book is going to be a treasure chest of life-changing stories written by African-
American men who are driven to change the narrative of black males in America. Readers can
expect to be uplifted and encouraged by stories of faith, hope and answered prayers, as
contributors share how they overcame their tragedies and turned them into triumphs.
“It’s time that we hear from our brothers who are doing positive things in the community and
making a positive impact in the lives of others. This will be a welcomed new collection of
history about black men,” says Toni Coleman Brown, Vice President of the Collaborative
Contributors to this anthology represent black men from all walks of life. They vary in age,
cultural backgrounds and reside in cities across the United States. The co-authors are penning
experiences about life, fatherhood, friendships, relationships, business and social issues as well as
negative perceptions that they’ve had to face in order to survive in today’s society. Readers will
be able to relate to the stories shared in the anthology and will understand that they’re not alone
in their life challenges.
"I would like to first give honor and Glory to my Heavenly Father Jesus Christ for all of his many rich blessings over my life for the past 38 years. I'm so honored to join with Julia Shaw and Toni Coleman in co authoring an Historical book on prominent African American Men in the 21 century.
The focus for me is to spread the message of hope, healing, and faith through my work in getting men screened for Prostate Cancer Globally. I pray that my message will touch millions but most effectively reach a lost soul to comeback home to Jesus Christ".
