Fueled by an uncanny mix of observational humor and candid social commentary, “How To Eat Chicken Wings, Battle Injustice, and Graduate On Time” transforms grandma’s folk tales, personal college experiences, and sobering life lessons into practical strategies for personal development and real world application. Mixing the reasoning sessions of the local barbershop and fervor of street corner theologians, the inter-generational dialogue covers a wide range of topics including manhood, black love, bridging generation gaps, and the cross cultural appeal of hip hop. Far beyond canned speeches or lectures, award winning writer, counselor, educator, and activist Edward M. Garnes, Jr. , founder of From Afros To Shelltoes, shoots straight in his most personal speaking tour of all time.
