CLARKSDALE – Motivational speaker Richard Sutton will host a book signing at Coahoma Community College Wednesday, April 26, to celebrate the release of his first book, “Fear of Becoming a Man.”

Slated for 10 a.m. in the Magnolia Room of the Zee A. Barron Student Union, the event is free and open to the public.

“Fear of Becoming a Man” chronicles Sutton’s journey as he searches for the real meaning of manhood—what it looks like and what it represents.

In the book, Sutton faces the realization that no one has ever explained to him the difficulties of being a black male.

With no true positive role models to help combat the negative impact of society’s degenerate depiction of black men, he faces the arduous journey all while being raised amidst the urban decay of Philadelphia.

Sutton desperately attempts to figure it all out while being counted out due to his educational challenges and his own personal insecurities.

Not only is the fear relevant, the fear is real…the “fear of becoming a man.”

A native of Philadelphia, Sutton is an entrepreneur and the owner of PDQ Management, LLC and the founder of The Amari Academy.

He is the creator of the 1000 Black Men Movement, a community outreach organization that encourages men to unite to make a positive impact on the youth.

With over a decade of experience in the banking and finance industry, Sutton also serves as a financial literacy coach.

He has a total of six siblings and one son.
