Nationwide — With data showing that 70% of African American children are raised by single mothers, and a significant portion of them being male, author and single mom advocate Sanya Simmons’ book A Single Mom’s Guide to Raising Black (Gentle) Men is right on time. “As we celebrate mothers in May, it’s crucial to shine a light on the incredible power and resilience of single mothers, especially those raising Black sons,” says Sanya who wrote this book to empower single mothers with the knowledge, tools, and encouragement they may need to navigate the same challenges she encountered raising her two sons.

Topics include Get Rid of The Anger, Make Sure He Knows He Is Loved, Look For The “Why” Behind The Behavior, Know His Teachers, Teach Him About Malcolm X, Let Him Go, Forgive Yourself, and more.

From navigating the educational system and combating stereotypes to discussing topics such as sex, sexual orientation, self-care, and gender identity, she offers invaluable guidance on how to nurture and support Black boys to become compassionate, resilient, and successful men.
