In the pages of this book, you will find the words of the young men, whose passion for teaching is finally connecting with America's African American youth. Their stories tell it all. Young men who have teetered on tragedy, who have had trauma and disappointment in their lives are inspired to new heights--Call Me MISTER has opened the doors to a great future in which they can give back in remarkable ways.
