Publisher's Description

"The black community is in trouble," writes Anthony Bradley. Systemic issues are perpetuating a chronic plague on not only African-American society, but the black church in particular.

Continuing the renowned "Cosby Conversation," first started in 2007 by Bill Cosby and Dr. Alvin Poussaint, Bradley has assembled a team of pastors, scholars, and leaders to address specific issues within the black community. Bradley’s volume features contributions from himself, Vincent Bacote, Ralph C. Watkins, Eric M. Mason, Anthony Carter, Craig Mitchell, and others.

Covering a variety of topics, including victim mentality, hip-hop, masculinity, and the prosperity gospel, this book will open readers’ eyes to the serious challenges facing the black church today. It will not leave readers without hope, however, as each contributor brings the conversation back to the Bible and the gospel as the only source of true, enduring change.

Endorsements

Dr. Bradley consistently brings poignant insights into the Christian, black, and hip-hop communities. Here he gives worldview-shifting challenges and profound, timeless solutions. I’m grateful to know him and have this book in my hands.
-LeCrae Moore,
hip-hop artist, Reach Records

Keep Your Head Up challenges the churches to not let traditions and culture keep them from missing the past two generations of young people who have been unchurched. Bradley encourages the church to be intentional in building open, listening relationships with those who have been influenced by hip-hop and gangsta rap. The church must become more user-friendly to these dear ones in our communities.
-Donovan Case,
President, African Americans For Missions (AAFM)

Dr. Bradley’s call for psychological and spiritual wholeness is a daring, needed charge to our ethnic communities. It is my hope that the thorough brand of freedom he envisions will accompany the resurgence of the gospel in our cities and families.
-Jason Wright,
7-year NFL veteran; MBA Candidate, University of Chicago, Booth School of Business

Keep Your Head Up is candid, convicting, and balanced. Bradley assembles a great team of Christian thinkers who create a dialog between Augustine, Bell, Hooks, Ice Cube, and William Julius Wilson on one hand and Bill Cosby, Alvin Poussaint, and Eric Michael Dyson on the other. The writers provide great cultural, statistical, and historical analysis of the Come On, People and Is Bill Cosby Right? approaches to complex social issues within Black America and of how far we have to go to overcome. Along the way, they redefine black church, black theology, and what it means to be African-American, producing a fresh new call for the church to hear the truth. This is a significant discussion needed in every church in America so that the ‘One New Man’ can solve the institutionalized and self-inflicted problems facing the African-American community. This work demonstrates that the applied gospel in the hands of the church of Jesus Christ is sufficient to meet the needs of a community that often still faces the reality of living in a present hell.
-Eric C. Redmond,
Senior Pastor, Reformation Alive Baptist Church, Temple Hills, Maryland

There has been an epidemic among African-Americans for many generations. I am excited that this book highlights the reality of the epidemic from a Christ-centered paradigm, focusing on him and not the false American dream of ‘pulling yourself up by your bootstraps.’ I pray this book alarms the redeemed to the reality of this call. This is a generational issue that beckons the talents, resources, visions, and gifts from the body of Christ at large.
-Adam Thomason,
Lead Teaching Pastor, Damascus Road, Flint, Michigan; author, Red Revolution: Seeing the World Through the Lens of Christ
