Glenn Lutz - There's Light: Artworks & Conversations Examining Black Masculinity, Identity & Mental Well-being Hardcover

There's Light: Artworks & Conversations Examining Black Masculinity, Identity & Mental Well-being is a collection of over sixty artworks from contemporary art legends and emerging talents, alongside more than thirty interviews from artists, activists, psychologists, community organizers, authors, musicians, filmmakers, athletes, and lawyers. Contributors include the late Virgil Abloh, Tunji Adeniyi-Jones, Mark Bradford, Wyatt Cenac, Barkley Hendricks, Rashid Johnson, Glenn Ligon, Steve McQueen, Tyler Mitchell, Darnell L. Moore, Pope.L, and many more.


There's Light is an expansive collection of artworks and conversations showcasing some of the infinite faces of Black male identity, brought together and published by the contemporary artist, Glenn Lutz. Through the multiple voices and creative expressions of leading luminaries, There's Light examines themes related to Black male identity, masculinity, and mental well-being. The book showcases artworks and conversations which delve into the Black male psyche, questioning what it means to be a Black man and how to overcome the inherited traumas and injustices faced as a community to attain success.


Created to inspire the next generation to embrace themselves fully, There's Light delivers a wake-up call that there is no time like the present to overcome institutional hurdles to embrace one's true calling without preconceived ideas of one's self-worth. The topics discussed highlight the interviewee's visions for a just future, how they manage their mental health, and how they have overcome hardship and attained success in a system designed for them to fail. The narrative speaks to the power of Black men coming together to share their journeys and create the change they wish to see in the world.
