Wow...what an eye opening book. I knew that life in Harlem was tough but I think what shocked me the most was the age of Claude at the beginning of the story and the things he was doing at such a young age. Everyone should read this book to get a better understanding of the black man's struggle in this country.

Claude Brown is a black man who made it out of the ghetto, who pulled himself up from Harlem, from the gang wars, the crime, the dope pushing to become a law student at one of America's leading universities. Manchild in the Promise Land is his story. It is one of the most extrodinary autobiographies of our time.
