Nationwide — Released earlier this year, America The Black Point of View by Tony Rose continues to spark the minds of black communities and leaders across the country. The book is essentially a children’s story – a story of tens of millions of children locked away in the segregated, red-lined ghettos and housing projects of America. It is the story of children living in horrific environments, with bad parents, in bad schools, where death rides hard and is known by everybody.
Rose, who is an NAACP Image Award Winner For Outstanding Literature, comments, “I found out early on that this was not going to be an easy book to write. I wanted to write an autobiography about… the horrific murderers, pimps, gangsters, rapists, drug dealers, drug addicts, child abusers and thieves that I grew up with, lived with and called family… [but] I soon realized that I could not write about me as an African-American… without writing about White America.”
He continues, “I come from a place that is so invisible that you can hardly see me. Yet, I am despised, hated and feared more than anyone or anything… I live in the underbelly of America and I am poor and have nothing. I am a Black man, a Black woman, a Black child… and I am invisible, until someone kills me.”
“I also wanted to write about what it was like for a child… in the real ghetto, the projects… where, contrary to how poor Black people are always depicted, there was no God, no church on Sundays, and no singing in the choir.” — Excerpted from the Introduction
“An alternately poignant and powerful autobiography that is as much a riveting overcoming-the-odds memoir as it is a searing indictment of the United States as a racist society. A must read.” — Kam Williams, Syndicated Book Reviewer
