(Every Black Man and Black Woman on the planet should read ALL of these books at least once. Young Blacks should also read most of them, although some may have adult themes and adult subject matter.  Again, parents or guardians should pre-read them first for minor children ages 15 through 18. Many of these books are not suggested for readers younger than 15 years of age... Many of the older books (and some new ones) are, of course, available at the Library. If you need some guidance as to how to aim the books listed here at your particular problem, be it financial, emotional or organizational—call and tell us what issue you want to read about and we will tell you what books to read that deal with that particular subject.  This is a good idea because some of the titles are misleading.  As the old saying goes, don’t judge a book by its’ title!!! Call and ask for Brother Tracy Gibson at 1 215 921 2065  or e-mail us at BrotherTracy11@GMail.Com we are more than willing to guide you to a book pertaining to the subject matter you want to explore… Have a good day…)
