Filled with first-person accounts from well-known celebs (think Jon Drummond, Kirk Franklin, John Legend) and “ordinary people” (an accountant from Philly, a Boston reporter), Holla Back...But Listen First: A Life Guide for Young Black Men ($12) by Mister Mann Frisby follows 30 men growing up black. Contributors tackle topics such as identity, sex, father-hood, faith and violence, encouraging young brothas to let the “ol’ heads” school them. The book can be purchased online at www.phatback.org.
