Brenda M. Tillman - Author of Shades Of Mandingo - Book Testimonials


Shades of Mandingo is a fascinating work in its promotion of positive images of African-American males. With sensitivity and thoughtfulness, Tillman manipulates poetic language beautifully. I found especially appealing “Everything I Need,” “Men on the Yard” and “At Last, This Is Love.” A must-read for men, especially African-American men, who may not realize the degree to which they are appreciated. Earle D. Clowney, Ph.D.

The complex self of the African-American male, like a multi-layered robe, is pealed off, layer by layer, to display his humanity as son, father, grandfather, friend, lover, husband, teacher, and sensitive being. Come and explore this discovery with Tillman. You won’t regret it.
Charles W. Washington, Ph.D.

Brenda M. Tillman has produced an incredible collection of inspirational poems carefully crafted to uplift the spirits and souls of black folk. Her words remind us of those of Dr. W.E.B. DuBois articulated nearly a century earlier.
Kwaku Danso, Ph.D.

“What does it mean to be a man? Surprisingly, no one knows better than Brenda Tillman. The shortest path to becoming somebody is to know whom to follow. When it comes to manhood, Shades of Mandingo points the way.”
Dennis Kimbro, Ph.D.
Author “What Makes the Great Great”
