The first chapter of this book gave me the impression that this was a story of growing up in the inner city of Baltimore which piqued my curiosity. It is less that and more a memoir about the author and his family. His parents emphasis on knowledge and education are inspiring. Coates prose and use of language are masterful.

The father is a fascinating character: A former prominent Black Panther expelled from the party and declared an enemy of the people who starts a publishing company reprinting works of African History.
