From the Author: "Voices From The Ghetto is a collection of powerful urban stories told using poetry. This book is meant to do two things. One to bring awareness to the lives of those who live in the ghetto and other urban and impoverished areas. These people have stories that no one hears about. When we hear about them in the news we don't see them as people, thus this books is meant to bring back humanity to those who we have dehumanized.
The second thing this book is meant to achieve is to inspire those living in the ghetto to not just achieve their destiny but become a destination for others to follow. It is meant to show people that they can conquer their environment and that no matter where you are born or what colour your skin is you can achieve greatness and even immortality.
This book was inspired by books like The Autobiography of Malcolm X, Nelson Mandela's The Long Walk To Freedom, Maya Angelou's I Know Why The Caged Bird Sings to name a few.
So if you want to read a book meant to not just inspire minorities but also to give voices to the people whose stories we don't know about. Then this book is for you, your children and your grand-children.
My hope is that book can help save lives and stop the stereotypical killings like the Trayvon Martins, Jordan Davis's, Oscar Grants, Mike Browns and the others who have been killed for no other reason than the colour of their skin and the prejudices that go with that skin."
