Let It Bang: A Young Black Man's Reluctant Odyssey into Guns

by RJ Young

A story of race, guns, and self-protection in America today, through the quest—funny and searing—of a young black man learning to shoot a handgun better than a white person.

Let It Bang is an utterly original look at American gun culture from the inside, and from the other side—and, most movingly, the story of a young black man's hard-won nonviolent path to self-protection.
