ABOUT THE BOOK
Weekend Reflections is a graphic memoir meant to encourage black men into being vulnerable and courageous human beings through words and pictures. The book travels through Blackness, relationships, religion, culture and Hip Hop to fully-paint life against the colorless assumptions made by a first glance. Weekend Reflections is a stream of consciousness work with out-loud visuals that are full of ambiguous thoughts, contrarian views, and insightful experiences of a Southern, Black, Hip Hop man who hopes to grow and find understanding by saying the things that are usually left unsaid.
