Raising Men
Raising an admirable son in the era of the Angry White Male, marked by school shootings and gun violence, #MeToo outrage and wider acknowledgment of complex gender issues is challenging. Offering a thoughtful and personal appraisal of the complicated meaning of masculinity in our time, Michael Ian Black tackles these topics with characteristic humor and a respectful grace. As he writes to his son, getting ready to leave for college, he recalls the day the boy arrived in the world and the thicket of emotions that accompanied that arrival. Based on both personal experience and thoughtful observation of the rapid changes that are taking place in our society, he searches for the best way for his son to navigate these changes and become a more evolved man than the majority of those men who have come before him. Black is a multi-media talent who’s starred in numerous films and TV series, written and/or directed two films, is a prolific author and commentator and regularly tours the country performing his ribald brand of jokes and observations.
