Overview

A Letter to My Father: A revealing account of a sonâs personal memories to his deceased father about the love and strength of their family.

The author shares his experiences of growing up in Philadelphia, Pa., surrounded by racial images, while trying to find his place in a struggle for social equality during the 1960's.

His search leads him to the black nationalist ideology of the Nation of Islam, community activism, and crime. Arrested, convicted and though eventually acquitted of an infamous murder, he finds himself trapped in and swallowed up by a repressive and counterproductive prison system.
