Imagine carrying around a childhood secret of abuse, then having the added burden of hiding your sexuality from the world because of your chosen career. Thus was the life of television anchor Don Lemon, who has covered breaking news stories from around the world for CNN.

In this memoir, Lemon not only comes “out” as a black gay man and victim of pedophilia, he uses the book to discuss much more — race, politics, and self-worth.

Format: Hardcover: 264 pages, Kindle (Farrah Gray Foundation)
