Fighting Injustice with Literature

Black Futures Matter

“At a time when we still have to shout that Black Lives Matter, I wanted to prompt the Black Boys who I love to envision all the possibilities before them,” Shepherd explained. “I wanted then to picture a future of positivity and hope- one of pride in their own greatness and power.” Arming myself with over 200 books, and 1800 dollars in donation, I decided to peacefully protest by handing out signed copies of my book to every Black Boy I encountered fighting for change on the front line.

Black Boy, Black Boy taps into the magic of this mantra’s simple positive message: black boys can be a doctor, a judge, the president . . . anything they want to be!

Each page depicts a boy looking into the future, seeing his grown-up self and admiring the greatness reflected back at him. This book is created to teach black boys and the world that there are no barriers, and if you can dream it you can be it.

Black Boy, Black Boy is meant for everyone. He is meant to teach the world that black boys want a future without limits.

The journey from idea to published was never meant to be a straight line. There was a lot of twist and turns. Ups and downs. Highs and lows. Good and bad, but I would do it all again for this! For the feeling of accomplishment; of pride; of invincibility.
