Hence, the book opens with a daring editorial entitled “A Challenge to the 21st Century Black Man” and culminates with a poignant open letter to Blacks of all ages and socioeconomic stature. My Head is Bloody, But Unbowed is a literary cornucopia for anyone who has ever asked the following questions: What captivates and annoys people of color? Why do they think and behave the way they do? What is   the rationale behind their fears and aspirations? Why are African-Americans views regarding affirmative action and police brutality in total opposition to individuals of   European origin? This book reveals all that and more. Moreover, found among the intrigue are such hot issues as    color consciousness (lights vs. dark) and Black-on-Black violence.
