Astonishing, tear-jerking, and thought provoking! The Janitor's Sons is a chilling and extraordinary inside look at urban life in America, and its suburban contrast. Gregory Collier tells the incredible true story of two brothers raised amongst the broad spectrum of social classes in Detroit, Michigan, and its posh suburbs. It is a story of agony and ecstasy, crime and punishment, and choices that can impact one's entire life. Somewhere in America is a young black male capable of becoming president of the United States, or anything he desires. However, in an era when a college education is more important than ever, he might not graduate from high school. With The Janitor's Sons, Gregory Collier draws a line in the sand and declares, "black males must not fail in school or in life - America is too important!" The Janitor's Sons is part of The Collier Project to help young black males achieve at high levels. However, anyone who reads this book will be inspired and benefit. In fact, for anyone who wants to achieve at the highest levels, The Janitor's Sons is your road map. If black males fail to improve upon many negative trends, America is in jeopardy. We are all in this together; we are inextricably linked! God help us all!
