In How to Build a Strong Black Man, Marvin O'Bryant believes that, as a society, we are distracted by all of the things of the world. With this distraction comes the near null support of many of our black boys in America, who are in dire need of provisions that will help them to become a strong black man. O'Bryant provides vital ingredients needed to build a strong black man, such as quality education, love, responsibility, attitude, managing anger, frustration, and patience.
O'Bryant pins a poignant letter addressed to black men with a call to action that will encourage more black leaders to assist in building strong black men. O'Bryant recognizes the need for drastic change, because in America if we do not fight to build strong black men, we will lose generations.
