In his first book for adults, the New York Times bestselling creator sparks honest dialogues between men and women, in the tradition of Steve Harvey’s Act Like a Lady, Think Like a Man.
Only 34 percent of African-American children nowadays are raised in two- parent households, a sharp contrast to 1966, when 85 percent of black children were raised by two parents. In provocative but heartfelt words, Hill Harper takes on these urgent challenges, bringing numerous issues out of the shadows. In The Conversation, Harper speaks to men and women with clear-eyed point of view, covering topics such as:
•The roots of the breakdown in the black circle of relatives
•The myth that there are no mature, single, black male professionals
•What women can do to alleviate the “heaviness” they now and again attach to dating
•What men can do to break the cycle of being a player
•The difference between sex and intimacy
•Bridging the communication gap
•Self-worth and net worth, and why you must never settle for an unworthy partner
Capturing the conversations Harper and his friends incessantly have, this book is destined to be one of Harper’s most healing contributions.
