I fell in love with Eric. E. Brown Jr.’s book Weekend Reflections, and then I fell in love with the man. What an absolutely beautiful soul and inspired advocate for justice. This is a very deep dive into some very uncomfortable places especially in terms of our country’s history of race and systemic discrimination. I invite you to come along with us.
ERIC E. BROWN JR. is a politico, community organizer, cultural ethicist, Hip Hop enthusiast, and former Baptist minister. A Nashville native, Eric is a graduate of American Baptist College, Vanderbilt University and Vanderbilt Divinity School. Eric writes about complex subjects in a plain speech fashion to detail rare honesty in a politically correct world. When not working, Eric loves to read, write, and enjoy time with his spouse, Brittney, and their three dogs (Senator, Aaliyah, & Phife, “The Dog”).
Weekend Reflections is a graphic memoir to push a black man into being a vulnerable and courageous human being through words and pictures. The book travels through Blackness, relationships, religion, culture and Hip Hop to fully-paint life against the colorless assumptions made by a first glance. Weekend Reflections is stream of consciousness with out-loud visuals that are full of ambiguous thoughts, contrarian views, and insightful experiences of a Southern, Black, Hip Hop Man that hopes to grow and find understanding by saying the things that are usually left unsaid.
