Dear Kola Boof,

I am a Black British woman who first heard about your story through a report on an English news site:

http://www.blackbritsusa.com/news/news.asp?news_id=531&returnURL=%2Fnews%2Finter national%5Fnews%2Easp%3F

I quickly ordered your book at a store in New York City and have taken it all the way back to London with me.

It's shockingly marvelous. I've have never read anything like it.

I appreciate your courage and while you were saying so much to your sons in the letter "The Authentic Black Man", I was taking it to heart and will raise my future children the same exact way.

I cried when I read "The Authentic Black Man" and I had my Jamaican father to read it. He agreed with everything you wrote and he is now love with you.

Though you wrote it for sons, I wouldn't be surprised if more daughters took this daring essay to heart.

Black diaspora people need this type of book in England.

God bless you.

Althea Pedley March
