About the Book

Brad Zervas observed twenty years ago that the boys we once were are the men who we become—and the same is true today.

It’s a startling observation given that all is not well in America and around the world—especially for young men of color.

They Are All Our Sons shares a series of tragic and uplifting stories that convey five key principles that can ignite these boys. These principles will lead them to a manhood rooted in grace, dignity, respect, community engagement, familial connection, and civility.

With nearly forty years of experience as a leader, educator, community activist and youth advocate, Zervas shares lessons from relationships with boys who have succeeded and soared—as well as insights from those who have been distracted, lost, and forgotten.

Our nation faces a crisis of epic proportions, and it is time to recognize that these boys have value and merit our love, attention, and commitment.
