Book Description 
  
As hip hop conquers the world and black actors sweep up awards, a new group of black men has risen to the forefront of popular culture. These are men who are not afraid to express themselves and who possess a unique sense of freedom when it comes to style and image. They are all here in this stunning visual tribute to black male beauty. From film and television, youíll find photographs that reveal the suave Jamie Foxx, the sleek Mekhi Phifer, the lovable Will Smith, and the edgy Vin Diesel. From the world of music, images convey the raw muscular power of such performers as 50 Cent, Ja Rule, Jay-Z, and Usher. And, sports figures like Lebron James, Allen Iverson, and Stephon Marbury display a comfortable elegance with their athletic prowess in awe-inspiring photographs.  
  
Whatever their mission, each of these men has made his own way in the world, forging his iconic status out of his individual personality and attitude. For black men, style is not just a matter of how they wear--or donít wear--clothes. Itís an opportunity to create an image, to change peopleís minds, or to seduce. African-American men possess a fashion vocabulary all their own. From jazz zoot suits and African hairstyles to hip hop furs and gangsta rap gold chains, black men often pioneer trends that later become part of the mainstream.Featuring work by top photographers including Barron Claiborne, David LaChapelle, Roger Erickson, Guzman, and Dah Len, More Body, More Soul gives us a candid and provocative look at the sensuality and vitality of todayís most talked-about black male stars.
