Nothing Over Truth is Michael R. Bradley's deeply self-reflective autobiography about a youthful black male, his confrontational relationship with the streets and how 38-years of incarceration have helped him to reach a keen sense of awareness about life and death. Bradley's historical journey through family relationships and oppressive social conditions serves as an example of how ritual acts of anti-black racism lead to assault, death and a life of incarceration. As a former member of the Harlem Crips in Los Angeles, Nothing Over Truth is offered as deterrence for this generation of youngsters flirting with the idea of criminal activity.

About the Author
Michael R. Bradley was born in South Central Los Angeles in 1958 and has been incarcerated with the California Department of Corrections since 1977. He has completed several college courses while incarcerated including writing and literature classes. Besides being the author of Nothing Over Truth, Bradley is the editor of Dirty Tears: Anthology of Folsom Prison Writings and has published several articles including, Subjugation to Incarceration which was presented to an international conference in Dubrovnik, Croatia in May 2015. Bradley is a former member of the Harlem Crips in Los Angeles and hopes the ideas included in Nothing Over Truth will deter young men and women from joining a gang or being involved in criminal activity. Bradley believes that both circumstance and suffering have caused him to confront death and that relationship has borne a keen awareness about life. Because of this, he is a practitioner of existentialist philosophies and uses this work as a deterrent for those flirting with self-deception.
