America’s Black Superhero, the Real Life Urban Superhero, DangerMan, is known for his many heroic feats, and inspiring and motivating kids is one of them. Beginning May 5, 2019 through May 10, DangerMan will embark on his “Books Not Bullets” national school tour, visiting schools in Detroit, Toledo and Chicago. Delivering a message of hope and aspirations for success, the “Books Not Bullets” tour will serve to empower children to choose books, reading and life, over guns, bullets and violence. The tour is generously sponsored by U.S. Bank.
DangerMan was created by actor, producer, recording artist, mentor and philanthropist Roger I. Tinsley, the founder of the DangerMan Urban Superhero brand and CEO/President of the DangerMan Education Foundation, Inc., a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization. The action hero recently celebrated a 20-year anniversary and has steadily evolved into the fastest growing superhero brand in the world, giving back with many philanthropic activities, all centered around helping to make the world a better place.
”While most Superheroes are fighting monsters from other planets, DangerMan is fighting the villains right here in our community, who victimize and prey on the children and seniors in our cities daily,” cites Tinsley. “DangerMan encourages children to live their best life through education and by living a healthy lifestyle, staying in school, working hard, dreaming bigger and never giving up! DangerMan is excited to spread his message nationally and is particularly looking forward to visiting Detroit, his hometown.
”Tinsley first introduced DangerMan to America in 1998 after being emotionally impacted by the death of a 4-year-old. The young toddler was riding in the car with her parents to a birthday party in her new blue dress, when a stray bullet from a gang member’s gun crashed through the back window. Tinsley felt compelled to create a real-life super hero who could serve as a role model for school age children in underserved communities while addressing issues that specifically affected them. Using his own money and resources, he created DangerMan, the Urban Superhero.
The “Books Not Bullets” tour includes the following stops:
May 6 / Girl Scout Troop Southfield Library, Greenfield Union Elementary & Middle School;
May 7 / Focus Hope – Center for Children
Jefferson Elementary School
Detroit Innovation Academy;
May 8 / Martin Luther King Jr. Academy for Boys;

DangerMan has traveled throughout America and Haiti, enabling children to live their best lives. The DangerMan Urban Superhero brand stands for justice and health for all people through a new global initiative, through the DangerMan Superhero franchise, has produced two crime thrillers, ”DangerMan’s Girls Aren’t for Sale” and “DangerMan Returns.” The latter film is set for release May 25. Tinsley plays the lead role of Danger Man. This project is being produced for television. Tinsley also produces the DangerMan Hero Awards Gala held in December at the California African American Museum, honoring local heroes who are making a difference.
