I recently purchased Letters to Young Black Women and have to say I was pleased with the content. I plan on buying a few more copies to give to the young black females I teach. I have also read Letters to Young Black Men and purchased a few copies for the young black males I teach.As a young, educated, single, African-American woman raising a young girl, I am constantly searching for guidance. I, myself, struggled as a young girl; born to two mentally ill parents; raised in a variety of foster homes, to avoid the many pitfalls that young women are faced with today. It was only through constant prayer; protection from the Lord, education and research that I was able to overcome a variety of challenges.I believe that this will be a great book for me to share with my daughter and nieces. It is sad to say but books like yours are all I have to offer my child from a father's point of view. It is a wonderful start and hopefully I will be able to break the chain and cultivate a group of young ladies who have the know how and strength to operate from a position of strength and power.Thanks again for writing such a wonderful book that I believe has the power to help many young women simply based on the fact that your thoughts are so resounding that they almost walk across the page and whisper into the readers ears.
I picked up a copy of the book as stocking stuffers for the young women in my life, and I found it to be most enjoyable even at my age! I loved the book recommendations at the end of each chapter, most of which I have read. Kudos to Mr. Whyte!
I have read your book entitled "Letters to Young Black Men" and "Letters to Young Black Women". I enjoyed them both tremendously. I agree with your opinion on women being knowledgeable and sharing that knowledge with others. Your book hits on so many good points, I wish I had the time to discuss them all, but time is of the essence. I pray that your ministry will continue to flourish and grow because your words of wisdom to young ladies are vital. I grew up with biblical teaching from many women, but to hear a man's point of view showed me a different light of things. The chapter Beware of the Dogs" is AWESOME! You are so right about the different breeds of dogs out there. That chapter really took my blinders off to see these dogs for the dogs they are. Your book helped me to re-think a few areas in my 5 and 10 year plans. I just wanted you to know that your male perspective was a great help to me and may have kept me from destruction.
