"A true story in black and white"--Cover.
From the Publisher:
The brilliant graphic adaptation of a backlist classic by the renowned activist and children's advocate Oprah Winfrey called "an angel from God"
 
Long before President Barack Obama called his work “an all-encompassing, all-hands-on-deck anti-poverty effort that is literally saving a generation of children,” Geoffrey Canada was a small and scared boy growing up in the South Bronx. His childhood world was one where “sidewalk boys” learned the codes of the block and were ranked through the rituals of fist, stick, knife, and, finally, gun.
 
In a stunning pairing, acclaimed comics creator Jamar Nicholas transforms Canada’s raw and riveting memoir. Nicholas’s fresh and edgy art pounds past its borders to reach a new generation of readers with one of the most authentic and important true stories of urban violence ever told.

Praise

San Francisco Chronicle Book Review
" ...reads like a life-saving blueprint for the 21st century." 07/16/1995

"With this graphic edition, Nicholas offers yet another perspective on Canada's story." 07/15/2010
