An Epic History from Jamestown to the Million Man March Strong Men Keep Coming ' In her own special, provocative language, Tonya Bolden gives a voice to the voiceless, a name to the nameless. Revelations abound in Strong Men Keep Coming, and this is her singular take on the endless parade of black men who have fought, sung, cajoled, tricked, worked, wrote, or roped their way into the American experience....She has assembled a most rewarding cast, a phenomenal coterie of role models and phantoms, and she has done a splendid job of telling their stories.' -Herb Boyd, coeditor Brotherman: The Odyssey of Black Men in America
