The book is authored by Shawn Dove and Nick Chiles, and is equal parts 1) memoir; 2) historical account of the launch of CBMA and the growth of the Black male achievement movement; and 3) manifesto of where do we go from here in the movement of Black male achievement.

“I too am America is a special book written by special men. Shawn graciously shares his lessons of leadership, love, and sacrifice for the world to see and learn from, and we all should be truly grateful. Nick Chiles also lends his time and talent, and his amazing experiences to the pages of this incredible book. This book should be read, analyzed, and copied to make our world a better place.” - Wes Moore, NY Times bestselling author, Philanthropist

Our country is facing a reckoning on race relations. The recent murder of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor and other Black folks has ignited a racial justice/social change wave analogous to how the murder of Emmett Till ignted the Civil Rights Movement 65 years ago.

Reasearch from the Opportunity Agenda reveals that stories of our lived experiences, more so than data and numbers, is what evokes the empathy that changes hearts and minds.

Our nation is facing the fierce urgency of empathy and 'I Too Am America" provides readers with insights, inspiration that humanizes the stories of Black men and boys, while offering strategic recommendations on how we move from racial reckoning to racial resolution.
