Dear Black Boy: It’s Ok to Cry.
Dear Black Boy: It's Ok to Cry is a children’s book that tears down the myths and breaks the mental health stigmas that black men face. It reaffirms what our boys, men, and we as a people need to achieve emotional/mental wellness!
After the tragic suicide of Ebony's cousin in 2016, she decided that she wanted to do something to be a part of a much-needed conversation about mental health in the black/brown community. Growing up, Ebony watched as her family ignored and stayed silent about mental health. As a youth advocate, she watched as many youth struggled with their mental health, and she wanted to create something that could help affirm them and show them that seeking help and being vulnerable encourages strength, growth, and healing.
