I have been asked many times what made you do it? What made you and Lance start BLACK MEN READ? I sometimes struggle to answer the question. You see this thing we are doing didn’t start from a warm and fuzzy happy place like we would love to say it did. It wasn’t because “two brothers with a passion for literature” decided to share their passion with the world. It wasn’t some storybook beginning for two bookworms who met in an HBCU library on the campus of a prestigious institution. It all started from a place of anger, a place of frustration. It’s nothing we are ashamed of or try to hide but we truly wish the start was different.
So how did BLACK MEN READ begin?
