Books Info:

Fist Stick Knife Gun free pdf Long before President Barack Obama praised his work as "an all-encompassing, all-hands-on-deck anti-poverty effort that is literally saving a generation of children," and First Lady Michelle Obama called him "one of my heroes," 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 presents Canada's raw and riveting account, one of the most authentic and important true stories of urban violence ever told.

Jonathan Kozol called him one of the few authentic heroes of New York and one of the best friends children have, or ever will have, in our nation, and Oprah Winfrey simply refers to him as an angel from God. Canada is featured in Davis Guggenheim s documentary "Waiting for Superman ." Jamar Nicholas is a Philadelphia-based artist and educator who has dedicated his career to empowering young people. Pulitzer Prize winning editorial cartoonist Signe Wilkinson said about his work: Nicholas has his pen on the pulse of everything worth watching. "
