About this product
- DescriptionCalvin Whitfield, born and raised on the outskirts of NYC in New Rochelle, has written a raw and inspirational story about a suburban paradise, and the social influences that perpetrated its destruction. Whitfield gives a unique and compelling perspective into the life of his childhood while growing up in an environment that reflects the values of a utopian community. By contrast, he gives powerful insight into the social issues of drug use, domestic violence, disappearing fathers, and the system of welfare, that would eventually transform his life, those of his community, and forever change their way of living.
