Letters to a Young Brother: MANifest your Destiny
By Hill Harper
A must-read for young men and the people in their lives. Demetrius says,
"Read this book because Hill Harper's deep, personal insights can relate
to everything that a young man may go through."

All About Love: New Visions
By bell hooks
You're sure to be engaged by Hooks' radical approach to love and
relationships. She challenges readers to think of love as an action
and not a feeling, and remember love in the context of community and culture.  
    Devil in a Blue Dress
    By Walter Mosley

    Los Angeles! Jazz! Murder! Noir! You won't be able to put down
    Mosley's debut novel. A compelling and entertaining work of fiction.
