Rejected by other black boys for not being "black enough", a young D'Andre is unexpectedly welcomed into the white community of rural Georgia—a crossroads where a thin line holds back racial tensions.
At home, he faces a constant struggle between his wise yet heavy-handed father and a saintly mother with a shopping addiction.
Driven by the pain of rejection, D'Andre tests the limits of what it means to be "black" and "white". He soon finds that the acceptance of white people comes at a cost.
Tired of witnessing his father's abuse, he enlists in the military at 18 and gets assigned to the Pacific Northwest, enduring a different yet equally difficult life. As he adapts to military life, D'Andre continues to wonder if he'll ever find the peace he has always longed for.
Guidelines for Southern Black Boys is a unique and riveting true story about the identity games black men must play in order to find peace. Through a list of ten "guidelines" or insights, D'Andre transports us into his coming-of-age experience as a black male in a place where racial tensions are still very much alive.
