"When Darnell L. Moore was fourteen years old, three boys from his neighborhood tried to set him on fire as he was walking home from school. Darnell was tall and awkward and constantly bullied for being gay. That afternoon, one of the boys doused him with gasoline and tried lighting a match. It was too windy, and luckily Darnell's aunt arrived in time to grab Darnell and pull him to safety. It was not the last time he would face death. What happens to the black boys who come of age in neglected, poor, heavily policed, and economically desperate cities that the War on Drugs and mass incarceration have created? How do they learn to live, love, and grow up? Darnell was raised in Camden, NJ, the son of two teenagers on welfare struggling to make ends meet. He explored his sexuality during the height of the AIDS epidemic, when being gay was a death sentence. He was beaten down and ignored by white and black America, by his school, and even his church, the supposed place of sanctuary. He made it out, but as he quickly learned, escaping Camden, escaping poverty, and coming out do not guarantee you freedom. It wasn't until Darnell was pushed into the spotlight at a Newark rally after the murder of a young queer woman that he found his voice and his calling. He became a leading organizer with Black Lives Matter, a movement that recognized him and insisted that his life mattered. In recovering the beauty, joy, and love in his own life, No Ashes in the Fire gives voice to the rich, varied experiences of all those who survive on the edges of the margins. In the process, he offers a path toward liberation"--… (mehr)

It almost feels like everyone and their mother can write a memoir these days, but Darnell L. Moore has actually lived a compelling life--he grew up as a gay black man during the height of the AIDS epidemic, became one of the vanguards of the Black Lives Matter movement, and is currently one of the most important voices in young black culture. I found Moore's story to be both fascinating and inspiring. He comes across as incredibly charismatic and eloquent with a powerful message to share: "No more ashes. No more fires. Only love." Many thanks to the publishers for sending me an advance reading copy of the book. ( )

RGG: Essays wrapped in a memoir. Intense, explicit coming-of-age story as a Black gay man in an impoverished violent setting.

I listened to the audiobook and found the story an enlightening look into a young African-American man's life as he deals with the challenges of family, race, and his sexuality. ( )

A sometimes interesting look at what it was like to grow up black and gay in Camden, NJ in recent decades. Has more than a few blindspots, but is at times enlightening to those of us who have no experience with what the author describes. I would rate this 2.5 stars, rounded up to 3 for this review. ( )

Our humanity is illuminated by our brokenness as much as it is by our capacity to put ourselves back together over and over again. To the men whose lives were shaped by the beautiful complexity that made them human: I have written this book in memory of you. George Lewis and Grafton Harrity, thank you for giving me life. I will remember you always.
