"Political Science Professor Paul Kriese, through first person interviews, has captured the unique voices of African American men in Indiana on issues of education, religion, race, gender, family, and neighborhood. He astutely interweaves key elements of individuals into universal themes that represent diverse perspectives. Dr. Kriese enables readers to see these men beyond stereotypes and provides insights into the impact of individual experiences on their lives. He succeeds in writing history stories that might otherwise not be told." Francis Yates, Specialist, Library and Information Science Library Director,
