Brandon Frame, Chief Visionary Officer of award-winning digital platform TheBlackManCan teams up with the children book creators to highlight a rite of passage for little Boys in "My First Tie"
My First Tie is a wonderful story of a young boy sharing his experience learning how to tie his very first tie. The authors give us an inside scoop into the mind of a young boy seeking to mature and learn new things. Who knew learning to tie a tie would teach us the importance of honesty and telling the truth. "We are also introducing a positive black male character to children's literature. Coach is a fixer, a teacher, a motivator, a mentor, and all-around great guy. My First Tie is the second book in a wonderful children's book series, The Adventures Of Coach And Little Dell." shares co-author, Tanae Denean Eskridge, who resides in Los Angeles.
"My First Tie" punctuates a defining moment in a little boy's life where he looks to his male role models in his life, like his dad, to show him how to become a man. Unfortunately, many boys of color lack these rites of passage so Brandon has made this a staple in his national youth summits, "Building a Better Brother", where to-date, they have impacted over 7,500 young boys and have a mentoring network of over 250 mentors.
