Understanding these issues, their ramifications, and their overall impact on society is the first step for men to reclaim their throne and elite status in this constant, ever-changing world.

These added responsibilities are changing the male role within the family structure.

Brown releases his inner personal frustrations through a fiction genre capturing the feelings and experience that African American men are struggling with everyday. He sheds light on issues facing the 30 'Something' African American males and offer, not solutions, but avenues to overcome these challenges.
