How does it feel to be a black man in America? It hurts, but in a beautiful way.
So Shawn Taylor says—and a lot more—in this unapologetic and sharply critical exploration of the hatred and anxiety that American society harbors toward black men, and the fear and confusion that black men harbor toward themselves. Mixing humor, rage, and startling vulnerability, Taylor leads us on a no-holds-barred tour of his own masculine development: negotiating his young life without a father, getting shot, forming all manner of relationships with women. Big Black Penis, winner of the DIY Book Festival, brings the conversation on black masculinity into the 21st century.
