The Crying Buck book by Donney Rose

The Crying Buck is a twenty three poem collection that explores the vulnerabilities of the human condition through the lens of Black masculinity. An open account of the emotional turmoil inflicted on American Black male life and the tears buried within the ideals of manhood.




Black Out Loud is a collection of prose-style shout outs to Black culture written by poet, Donney Rose, during February 2017 (Black History Month). What began as random postings on Facebook to celebrate the vastness of Black identities, grew into a call from Rose’s online community to create in book format an archive of the content. Black Out Loud gives recognition to many of the unsung heroes and survivors of Black culture and does so with humor, critical analysis and depth. From cafeteria ladies to “hood scholars” to former inmates to historians, Black Out Loud casts a wide net in its attempt to deconstruct any monolithic view of the Black American experience.
