Connie Bennett Cameron has assembled some of her best works in this compilation of poetic thoughts and commentaries depicting the very heart of Black America's struggle to become truly free. Each offering depicts life experiences as seen through eyes where battles are won and lost in the constant struggle to identify, tear down and destroy the invisible walls skillfully built to keep Black America in bondage. More than mere poetry, Riding Tall In The Saddle gives the reader a glimpse of the struggles and triumphs in the Black Community in pure form: straight, undiluted and unfiltered. Cameron poetically portrays episodes and events that take the reader to the streets of racism where dedicated soldiers still pound the pavement; marching in faith and in hope of a free tomorrow. We are taken behind the scenes of Black America where Blacks are pitted against each other. Here, the taboo topic of spiritual corruption in the black church is examined. Not only are the actions and motives of the Preacher Man examined, the actions of our black brothers are called into question as well. In the poetic piece "Brother Man", the question is asked, what's wrong with you? At the end, he is admonished to "Be A Man, Be A Black Man! Riding Tall In The Saddle is a must read. It will change the way you think about Black America.
