Makes Me Wanna Holler by Nathan McCall

Nathan McCall’s book about his life of crime and how the justice system works against Black people has been read and critiqued by professors and scholar nationwide.

One reviewer had this to say:

Recent statistics from the U.S. Justice Department reveal that black males represent more than half the prison population. There are more African-American men in prison serving lengthy sentences, than in college, and a large percentage of these prisoners are unable to read. It is quite clear that all high school dropouts, with emphasis on minority youth, are more likely to end up in prison, or worse, dead from street violence and drugs.

Nathan McCall is one of these black males who ended up in the prison system. His book, Makes Me Wanna Holler, provides a compelling view of how he got there, and how he was able to make the necessary changes to become a positive contributor to his family and community.

Inspirational AND gangsta, what more can you ask for?
