TEACH ME HOW TO LOVE

Janks Morton in his semiautobiographical work tackles head on the taboo subject of parental resentment in the African American community and how a lifetime of repressed feelings determined the outcomes of his life. As you turn the pages of the book, you will see how the 11th commandment of “Thou shalt not question thy Mother” led the author through a lifetime of delusion, which translated directly to his inability to maintain a sustained healthy loving relationship with any woman, anywhere.

Morton sheds light on a subject matter that too often is swept under the rug in the African-American community, and brings center stage an intimate and personal perspective on how his inability to develop an adult healthy and loving relationship with the matriarch of his family, sent him on a tailspin of unreconciled and repressed emotions. Morton unfolds a searing examination of an ideologue that challenges Father, Mothers, Daughters and Sons, to find a pathway to forgiveness for their first teachers of love lessons.
