Born Fighting an Uphill Battle...

If you're a young African-American male today, you're more likely to grow up in a single-parent home, drop out of school, go to prison, or die from a gunshot wound than any other ethnic group in the United States. And if you're a good kid? You're likely to be perceived as stupid by your teachers, and people still are going to cross the street when they see you coming.

It's almost enough to make you give up. After all, what's the point?

Author Keith Horton has been there. And he's here to tell you there IS a point. So the odds are stacked against you. So what? Born Fighting an Uphill Battle is a realistic, no-holds-barred look at dealing with the challenges every young African-American male faces today--and at how to overcome those challenges. Keith offers hope and encouragement to the young men society has written off--and shows how they can become successful, happy, fulfilled African-American adults.
