For the Love of Black Men
For the Love of Black Men

"For the Love of Black Men is a thought-provoking, hard-hitting book of prose that offers renderings of past and present indignities, self-introspection, spiritual commitment, forgiveness and the necessity of solutions. It probes areas that are not openly discussed. More than just a book of poetry Ayin Adams’ volume addresses issues credibly, compassionately, and directly, with a minimum of soft edges. Adams transports the reader on a personal and private tour into a realm where some Black Men have had to wrestle and confront their own challenging questions concerning their wholeness."

I AM THE BLUES
I AM THE BLUES

A colorful book about the Blues. “The Blues, an original American art form has inspired and influenced peoples from all over the world. It grew out of field-hollers, call and response or work songs that were sung by the African slaves. It came from spirituals they sang in praise of God. It was born from the happy times, the sad and lonely moments. The Blues is a musical expression. It is based on the African five-note pentatonic scale. The term “Blues” arose in the early 1800’s. W.C. Handy popularized the form with his “Memphis Blues,” in 1914. The first recorded blues song was “Crazy Blues,” sung by Mamie Smith in 1920.”
