Melanated Rhapsody is a powerful ode to the experience and creativity of the modern self aware and self astute Black man. It reveals the hypocrisy, imagination, education and complexities of the Black community. Anonymous Onyx is at times very opinionated and controversial but at other times very emotional and sensitive. This is an analytical and very introspective journey that can also be very mature and raw in content. It is written in an educated yet urban vernacular. This masterpiece is literal, allegorical, metaphorical, sensual and rhythmic. This book will provoke discussion and will affirm the power and beauty of language. Melanated Rhapsody is like wine, sweet and/or dry and sometimes strong but always gets better with time.
