Welcome To Mortal Breath Publications
Garry's Latest Book - In Humanity
In Humanity is a statement of my anger, near bitterness and deep pain! It is a protest! It includes eleven (11) written pieces that cover the gamut of protest and anger. It is personal, and corporate.
I offer this small book in hope that you will find in it expression for your anger, angst and a statement that resonates with the pain that is felt by Black and Brown people in this country. There are audio recordings of each piece available. "In Humanity" will be available in printed format here at Mortal Breath and on Amazon Books as a download.
Let me tell you a quick story to illustrate why I created Mortal Breath Publications
As I turned the pages while reading “Why The Mandiaka Laughs?” to my 7-year-old grandson, he interrupted me with a question. He said, “Granddaddy, are all the people in this book Black?” I said, “Yes, they are.” I looked at his face as his head rested on my chest under my left arm as I answered his question and a smile broke across his innocent little face. In that moment I knew I have not done enough.
His pride and delight at reading a book that reflected his face on every page was a great source of pride, joy and inspiration to me. For this reason, above all else, I write children’s books. I will continue to write for every Black and Brown child who smiles at the appearance of their reflection in the books they read.
