Martellus Bennett pens a personal message with ‘Dear Black Boy’
More than any other game, the former NFL tight end wants black boys to win at the game of life

Knowing how easily black boys and men are boxed into the “athlete” stereotype and how many perceive their value deriving from physical feats, Bennett considers this a personal letter empowering them to dream bigger and embrace their full humanity.
