Published memoir: IN BLACK IN WHITE
Among several other themes, IN BLACK IN WHITE looks at the idea of nature versus nurture. It is the story of the "two educations" of an inner-city youth; an education derived from attendance in the Baltimore City Public Schools and surviving that city's streets; and then an education acquired from time spent in the ivy-covered Halls of (the all-boys) St Paul's' School in Concord, NH, one of the finest boarding schools in America, living and learning daily among some of the most privileged youth in this country. The outcome is anything but certain. Both places have the potential for chewing a body to bits; both places inhabited by some good and not-so-good people.
IN BLACK IN WHITE is a story about coming of age, forging relationships, success and failure, life and death, redemption and moving on. It examines the value of a first rate education (think Barack Obama) and provides an intimate glimpse into two very different worlds; which in the final analysis may not be all that different.
