Publisher's Summary

Is a lion in a cage still king of the jungle? With this seeming riddle, wordsmith, poet, and author Kennyrich creatively and tactfully constructs this unapologetic narrative about the enigmatic African-American race--particularly about what makes this people of infinite potential their own worst enemy and the biggest contributors to what is wrong with black culture in America.
Using his signature writing style, which infuses a seamless blend of poetry and prose, Kennyrich paints a vivid picture that highlights longstanding plagues that continue to afflict black people in the United States today. In truth you may be offended by the controversial words herein, or you may well find yourself in agreement with them. All the same you will ultimately be impacted and perhaps even enriched by the bold and candid perspectives they offer.

Goading! Just what I needed to hear and read.

Would you consider the audio edition of The Black Plagues: United We Stand, Divided We Fall to be better than the print version?

No, I prefer the print version, made my mind ponder.


What was one of the most memorable moments of The Black Plagues: United We Stand, Divided We Fall?

Hip Hop Poison provides significant questions and solutions to what affects the Black Community. Only if the artists in Hip Hop could realize their influential power, they have to do great things. This whole section is enduring.


Which scene was your favorite?

Daddy Issues would be my desired scene from the Black Plagues that features women talking about the absence of their father for various reasons located in the Broken Family Chapter.

A conversation that needs to be heard!

What did you love best about The Black Plagues: United We Stand, Divided We Fall?

I loved the fact that Kenneth Fomunung did not back away from being open and honest about his views on the black community. He discussed numerous topics that many African-American authors would back away from due to backlash. Very nice piece and new perspectives on an old issue.
