Overview

From high school dropout and convicted drug dealer, to successful entertainment industry executive, eventual law school graduate, and college professor, this is an explosively emotional inspirational journey exploring the ups & downs of growing up bi-racial in America. Born just a few years after the Supreme Court made discrimination against interracial marriage unconstitutional, the author takes you from his time as an impoverished youth, living in a predominantly white neighborhood, to his move to the inner city and predominately black school system. From being called ‘nigger’ in the white neighborhood to fighting daily for being attacked and called ‘white boy’ in the black neighborhoods. From the brutal murders of friends and family members, to providing an insider’s look at the author’s time in the entertainment industry, working on projects that went on to win Grammy Awards and garner numerous Gold, Platinum and Diamond records, through all the highs and lows of a life full of extreme challenges and inspirational triumphs.

REVIEWS & PRESS

“Simply brilliant”- Nancy Bonilla, Cabrera Press

“The must read book of the year!” – M.J. Brown

“Stunningly blatant and non-apologetic, this is a must read for anyone that is searching to find understanding in our current racially divisive times. For the first time, I feel as if I have a real understanding of the struggles associated with being bi-racial in America…”
