About the Author

AUTHOR BIOGRAPHY Malik Green is a 52 year old African American, born in Harlem; raised on the Lower East Side of New York City. As a child he loved reading. He was particularly interested in politics, his ethnicity and God. His inherent passion for his African ancestry was evident at a very young age. At the age of 5; which was in 1962, he distinctly remembers African Americans not wanting or liking to be "Black" or "African". He; however, for no specific reason, felt a joy in being "Black" or "African". This was the beginning of his quest to find answers as to why his people were treated the way they were. Why his people didn't seem to appreciate their own heritage and ethnicity. Malik's biological father left him before his first birthday. Malik's first African American role models were Muhammad Ali and Malcolm X. These men epitomized what he always thought African American men can be; independent, strong, intelligent and fearless. These men were the early influences in his life and have lead him on a mission to find the answers to some life's most pressing questions. Malik has a unique perspective on the problems and lack of unity that impedes the progress of African Americans; and especially, African American youth. His perspective comes from his own experiences as an African American growing up in America. He dropped out of school at age 17; and with no where to go, he joined the U.S. Army. After spending 5 years in the military he came back to New York and was introduced to "crack cocaine" After two hellish years of crack addiction; Malik, by the grace of some unbeknownst force was able to free himself from this menacing demon. He has been clean now for over 20 years. Over the last twenty years Malik as been on a mission to make sense of the predicament his people are in. He has studied history, politics, business and religion extensively. Basically, Malik is an erudite; one who has acquired knowledge through books and personal experiences. As you read his book you will quickly see that this man has a lot to offer the African American people and America as a whole.

By Jamel Augustus on November 3, 2009
The black print sheds light on many different problems we have in the African American communities. Being a young black male, I was indeed enlightened by the section regarding slavery. There was a lot of stuff about slavery that I didn't know about, stuff that our school system would not teach us. (In order to know who you are, you got to know where you came from) Overall the book is amazing, a must read for any body that wants to be a part of a movement. It is time we plant seeds in our communities to watch them grow into strong oak trees. The author outlines a step-by-step plan to plant those seeds to make our communities strong. There are many different obstacle African American people have to deal with. You may see people in music videos, actors, etc, but really the root of our problems start in our communities and our mind set towards life. The issues are in front of us and we need to start solving these issue. After reading the black print, it made me stronger, more aware, and more ready to be part of a movement. One day I would love to raise my children in a community where the roots are strong. I would recommend this book to young African American people, because we are the ones that would lead the movement. Every question that someone may ask, the author already comes up with an answer. This makes me happy, because there are too many so call leaders who come up questions, but never the answer. Mr. Malik Green comes with the answers, and to tell you the truth the answers are not that hard to accomplish. Read this book you would not be disappointed.

The book is very inspiring and uplifting. You're taken back to the ground roots of our culture to the present. I love the book because it's not something you just read once and never go back to. It's a book with a purpose and action plan. We all need/should be involved in our communities. If we don't do it for us at least be conscious and do it for our youth. We need to rise up and support our African American culture and be proud!! Great book which will leave you in awe!!!

I would like to share my overall impression of this book. The author certainly has an interesting narrative here - it is obvious that he is well read on his subject matter. I really enjoyed his approach and outlook. The author also does a nice job of expressing his ideas and tracing history. His narrative voice is very familiar and friendly. The book has an excellent flow to it and is nicely put together. It is filled with information I am sure many people will find interesting and thought-provoking. It is obvious that the author has done his homework and put much thought and preparation into this book. The author seems to have a certain fervor for the subject matter because he really does speak to his audience. I think this book will be well received by a wide audience. A very important and timely book, I highly recommend it!

This book is a wake-up call to Black America. It speaks to African Americans in a loving but stern and forceful manner. The author lays out the obstacles that impede the progress of many African Americans gives us a plan to remove these obstacle. According to the author,love and unity among African Americans is essential if we are to ever rise to our potential as a people. I agree with this wholeheartedly, African Americans seem to have lost the love for one another. This lack of love is destroying us as a people. I give author mad props for saying the things that need to be said. Too many of our so-called leaders refuse to speak out against the injustices perpetrated on the disenfranchised citizens of this country.
