Support Your Artists, order the book!

"Your artists give you visions and prophesy. If you don't support your artists, you will get no visions and see no prophesy!"--Amiri Baraka
of Pussy and Dick
Psychosocial Sexuality
Marvin X
387 pages,
Black Bird Press, 1222 Dwight Way, Berkeley CA

"Mythology of Pussy and Dick is a compilation of everything Marvin X has written on sexuality in America and the world. There are those who will miss this opportunity to receive wisdom from our brother because of the language he uses to describe the male and female anatomy, and his perceived objectification of women and men, and this is a tragedy because this information is crucial for men and women who are suffering from a psycho-linguistic and psychosexual crisis, some are inflicting actual violence upon mates in their male/female and same gender loving relationships...."
--Delores Nochi, introduction

The message in this book is resonating on a grassroots level, like Eldridge Cleaver''s "Soul on Ice" did when it first came out, and has become a hit among urban youth who claim it helps them "step up their game" or realize that they have something - and are something - of value that deserves appreciation and respect. And the youth who otherwise don't read, do read this book and even squabble over ownership, as if it were black gold!
