About the Book:
For decades, Jason Wilson tried his best to "be a man" but struggled to express the full range of human emotions because the only ones he felt comfortable expressing were the traditional "masculine" emotions--anger, aggression, and boldness. This went on until he finally released years of past trauma to attain the healing he needed to become a better man, husband, father, and leader. Learning how to master his emotions and verbally process them transformed Jason's life and relationships in ways he never could have imagined. He now seeks to expose the lies that many men have been deceived to believe about manhood and bring healing to their lives.
Battle Cry will teach men how to wage and win the war within themselves--unlearning society's definition of masculinity and empowering them with the tools needed to freely live from their hearts instead of their fears. Wilson shows readers how to
- win internal battles before they turn into external wars;
- master their emotions instead of being ruled by them;
- release trauma from their past so they can live fully to their potential in the present; and
- communicate more effectively with the people in their lives.
About the Moderators:
The Black Man Project explores the origins of how misconceptions such as one-dimensional expression and emotional inaccessibility have come to be. We specifically explore the complexity of African American masculinity for young boys and simultaneously create safe spaces for black young men to engage in dialogue that grants space that nurtures healing, wholeness, leadership, accountability, and brotherhood.

About Project Row Houses:
Project Row Houses is a community platform that enriches lives through art with an emphasis on cultural identity and its impact on the urban landscape. We engage neighbors, artists, and enterprises in collective creative action to help materialize sustainable opportunities in marginalized communities.
Project Row Houses occupies a significant footprint in Houston’s Historic Third Ward, one of the city’s oldest African-American neighborhoods. The site encompasses five city blocks and houses 39 structures that serve as home base to a variety of community-enriching initiatives, art programs, and neighborhood development activities. PRH programs touch the lives of under-resourced neighbors, young single mothers with the ambition of a better life for themselves and their children, small enterprises with the drive to take their businesses to the next level, and artists interested in using their talents to understand and enrich the lives of others. Although PRH’s African-American roots are planted deeply in Third Ward, the work of PRH extends far beyond the borders of a neighborhood in transition. The Project Row Houses model for art and social engagement applies not only to Houston, but also to diverse communities around the world.
