“In 1991, when he was 13 years old, Lenny Duncan stepped out of his house in West Philadelphia, walked to the Greyhound station, and bought a ticket--the start of his great American adventure.
Today Duncan, who inspired and challenged audiences with his breakout first book, Dear Church, brings us a deeply personal story about growing up Black and queer in the U.S. In his characteristically powerful voice he recounts hitchhiking across the country, spending time in solitary confinement, battling for sobriety, and discovering a deep faith, examining pressing issues like poverty, mass incarceration, white supremacy, and LGBTQ inclusion through an intimate portrayal of his life's struggles and joys. United States of Grace is a love story about America, revealing the joy and resilience of those places in this country many call "the margins" but that Lenny Duncan has called home. This book makes the bold claim that God is present with us in the most difficult of circumstances, bringing life out of death.”
I couldn’t be prouder of this humble submission to the lexicon of #BlackWriting in this country. If you haven’t read my post on about why #BlackWritingMatters you should. In modern publishing pre-orders are the only way to have a book make some noise on the “lists” is Pre-orders. So if you are comitted to Black thought and literature here you go. If Dear Church meant anything to you, you may love this. You may actually hate it. But I promised this community secret hook ups and insight into my work.
I am only accepting Launch Team members from this community. We will read my new book together over the course of the few weeks before publishing next spring over video chat. So private readings with me, a free copy, and all the tools you need to tell the world about this book. If interested comment below!
