In this week's Spotlight we feature "Colors Of A Man" by Tia Stewart.
Colors of a Man, "Tribute to African-American Men" is poetry about African-American men and the women who love them.
This poetry book is an in-depth look into the souls of men and women. In this book of poems, about everyday Joe's to CEO's, African- American men are compared to the great masterpiece paintings.
President Barack Obama is one of the many historical African-American men to whom the author pays homage. Using some of the same southern styles and celebrated genres as famous poets, Maya Angelou, Rita Dove, and Nikki Giovanni, Colors of A Man, "Tribute to African-American Men" handles tough subjects such as incarceration rates for our black youth, domestic violence, interracial love, cougar relationships, media views of African- Americans relationships, black family values, Christian marriages, health issues, and pastors in the pulpit, plus various other topics in Tia Stewart's series of books, "Colors of A Man".
