According to Denise P. Isaac, BLACK is intended to assist in minimizing the stereotypical behaviors,
hate, disrespect, rejection, denial, and misunderstandings that some people have concerning
Black children and to understand the things that they so often encounter. Her poetry speaks
to the children about who they are and gives them a platform to build their self-esteem and
confidence by reading and reciting poetic verses…. There’s NO SHAME in being BLACK….
While socially conscious citizens from the nation’s streets and communities are rallying for the
cause of Black Lives Matter, Denise is voicing her concerns through the spoken word of poetry. BLACK is one of the first colors that artists decided to use in art and their masterpieces
BLACK is a color that can be mixed with other colors to enhance and change them
BLACK is the combination of all other colors and races including white and being without color
BLACK is versatile, accommodating, flexible, rewarding, necessary, and enduring. BLACK is specifically tailored to Empower, Encourage, Inspire, Educate, Uplift and Enlighten
Black children for a lifetime. It is a tool that belongs in every home in America. Although much
of the poetry is based on the struggles and negative encounters experienced by Black children and their families, it is told in a way that gives hope and vibrancy to those who listen to the words.

Although the murders of innocent Black children have been going on for centuries, 2014 and 2015 were years that saw profound injustice, and extraordinary resilience. Homicides at the hands of police sparked massive protests, meaning that America could no longer ignore bitter truths of the Black experience. Gains have been made, but those of us who believe in freedom know we cannot rest until justice is won. This country must abandon the lie that the deep psychological wounds of slavery, racism and structural oppression are figments of the Black imagination. The time to address these wounds is now. Black lives will be valued, protected, and free.

Denise P. Isaac was drawn in and was able to empathize with the 'Black Lives Matter' movement. She took pen in hand and captured her emotions for the world to see. Hoping to influence the generations of young people by speaking the truth about who they really are, Denise, has written a brilliant book of poetry called BLACK, tailored to Empower, Encourage, Inspire, Educate, Uplift and Enlighten Black children for a lifetime, BLACK is a tool that belongs in every home in America.

Much of Denise P. Isaac's poetry is based on the real life struggles and negative encounters experienced by Black children and their families and Denise has voiced it in a way that gives hope, vibrancy, clarity and realism to those who listen, read and shout out loud......I AM BLACK PROUD AND AMAZING!

According to Tony Rose, NAACP Image Award Winner for Outstanding Literature, “Sometimes Imamu Baraka, Nikki Giovanni, and James Baldwin appear as spirits to guide us. Today they have appeared in the form of a Black woman named Denise P. Isaac. Run to it. Get it. Read her brilliant book of poetry. BLACK is the new language of HOPE for America!”.

Tony Rose believes in the power of BLACK and the spoken word and feels that Denise’s affirmations will confirm the value of Black children so they can know who they are, overcome their obstacles and gain positive values and purpose for their journey through life:

I am Black, Proud and Amazing
I am a winner and not a loser
I am smart, very intelligent and not dumb
I am a hard worker and not lazy
I have an excellent spirit and everything I do is done in an excellent way
I will live a life of decency and respect
I am a leader and not a follower that strives for Greatness
