A new edition, including the story of the founding of the Harlem Children's Zone Long before the avalanche of praise for his work--from Oprah Winfrey, from President Bill Clinton, from President Barack Obama--long before he became kwn for his talk show appearances, Members Project spots, and documentaries like Waiting for Superman, Geoffrey Canada was a small boy growing up scared on the mean streets of the South Bronx. His childhood world was one where sidewalk boys learned the codes of the block and were ranked through the rituals of fist, stick, and knife. Then the streets changed, and the stakes got even higher. In his candid and riveting memoir, Canada relives a childhood in which violence stalked every street corner.
Geoffrey Canada is the president and CEO of Harlem Children's Zone, a nonprofit, community-based organization deemed one of the most ambitious social experiments of our time by the New York Times Magazine. Jonathan Kozol called him, One of the few authentic heroes of New York and one of the best friends children have, or ever will have, in our nation, and Oprah Winfrey simply refers to him as an angel from God. Canada is featured in Davis Guggenheim's documentary Waiting for Superman.
