Gibbs is the author of a highly acclaimed book entitled “Yes, I Would Marry Him Again: Wives Salute Their African American Husbands”

 

 

Washington, DC (BlackNews.com) — Answering the call from President Obama’s “Responsible Fathers and Strong Communities” initiative, author Lori Jones Gibbs, through her highly acclaimed book, Yes, I Would Marry Him Again: Wives Salute Their African American Husbands, has created a national conversation about the many “Do Right” black men in America today.

“I wrote this book because I had never come across a book that served as a tribute to husbands, especially African-American husbands. I believe now is the time to recognize our strong black men. They are our fathers, brothers, sons, uncles and nephews. They are the foundation of the family, for it is from strong marriages that solid families are built,” Gibbs says.

For these reasons, Mrs. Gibbs implemented the Author Gives Back Program where she donates up to 25% of the proceeds from book signings to non-profit organizations that work to encourage personal responsibility and strengthen our nation’s families by providing mentoring and support for men and families in vulnerable communities.

About the Book
Yes, I Would Marry Him Again is a compilation of moving tributes to strong black men who love their wives and take care of their families. Countering the many negative assumptions about black men as absentee husbands and fathers, these salutes highlight the constructive and essential roles Black men across the country play in the lives of their families and communities.

In addition to the over 30 tributes from women including world-renown Gospel artist & Pastor Shirley Caesar, this book explores the “Keys to the Marriage Covenant” (“The Three C’s: Communication, Companionship and Compatibility”). There’s also a special section inviting women to add their own pictures and “Salutes” to recognize the special someone in their lives, transforming Yes, I Would Marry Him Again into the ultimate Father’s Day, Anniversary, Birthday or as a Just Because gift. This book demonstrates why love and marriage matter.
