Brother in the Bush is a coming-of-awareness memoir of what the experience of Africa can mean for a 21st-century African American. John Slaughter, a successful stockbroker, has a€œmade ita€ as a black man in America, but his life is full of constant reminders of how violently fragile existence here really is. Not long after his Baltimore townhouse is invadeda€”and Slaughter confronts, shoots, and kills the intruder with his shotguna€”he embarks on a series of trips to Africa that unfold over almost a decade. Along the way he discovers a way of life that transforms and deepens his identity as an African American. Seduced and humbled by the contrasting realities, beauties and dangers he discovers in East Africa, Slaughter encounters different ways of life that begin to change his conceptions of lifea€™s purpose and meaning. Slaughtera€™s vivid, blunt, and erudite narrative voice moves back and forth from his past growing up in the sixties and seventies to the present-tense of his journeys. Brother in the Bush unearths, probes and assesses the truths that Africa helps teach Slaughter about his lifea€”and all of our livesa€”here in todaya€™s America.This aquot;coming-of-awarenessaquot; memoir explores how travel through Africa transformed the life of a successful African-American professional.
