Barrett Blackmon, a married father of three who has worked as a health care administrator in the field of oncology for nearly twenty years, is a fellow in the American College of Healthcare Executives, and currently serves as vice president at one of the largest health-care systems in the country, has completed his new book “Metastatic America: Discovering America while Discovering Myself”: an engaging reflection on his childhood, career, and the experiences that have shaped his life as a Black executive in the United States.

“Metastatic America” sits at the intersection of personal memoir, current events, and self-improvement. It is a social commentary on the state of race, religion, and culture in the United States as seen through the life experiences of a Black health-care executive. With hilarious stories and witty one-liners, Barrett uses comedy to illustrate the various dichotomies in American society that have created marginalized communities.

Using the cancer journey as a framework, Barrett provides a strikingly transparent view of society from the Black perspective. As he points out in one of the chapters, “racism doesn’t have to exist, but it does.” The question is, why does it exist, and how can we change our current state of affairs to fulfill the American dream?

In this very transparent memoir, Barrett unveils his deepest secrets and most pivotal challenges that have most impacted his life. His story of overcoming in the face of adversity will inspire readers and motivate them to pursue the person they were born to be. From a kid whose daily walk from school included passing crack houses to becoming an executive in the largest health-care system in the country, Barrett met with “triumph and disaster and treated those two impostors the same.” His humility, desire to help others, and faith in his calling to spread hope remained steadfast despite enduring depressing lows and enjoying exhilarating highs.

Published by Page Publishing, Barrett Blackmon’s engrossing book is a compelling memoir and commentary on current events, faith, and American culture.

Readers who wish to experience this engaging work can purchase “Metastatic America: Discovering America while Discovering Myself” at bookstores everywhere, or online at the Apple iTunes Store, Amazon, Google Play, or Barnes and Noble.
