Mr. Boykin shows his compassion and care for gay/bisexuals African American community. Indispensible.

I purchased this book for my aunt's birthday because I own a copy and love it so much. It's small enough to tuck into a purse or bag, but every day's lesson is full of encouragement, insight, and new ideas/perspectives to chew on for a while. I also love the quotes from important figures in queer Black history. We need more books like this one!

How could anyone write a book about respecting the soul and not have anything in related to spirituality or the Soul. Again Mr. Boykin Trashes his own community with his wealth of negativity. Keith go read some Emmett Fox, Iyllna Vanzant, Jonnie Coleman or something dealing with New Thought because you are not respecting anything or anyone with this book.
