All of these books are by Walter Dean Myers...the first is written as a movie script...it's from the P.O.V. of a Black kid from Harlem on trial for a murder he didn't commit...the second is from the P.O.V. of a Black teenager going to Vietnam to fight...the third is written in the form of a series of psychological interviews, journal entries, and newspaper clippings surrounding a school shooting (this book is a work of fiction)...Hoops is a book about a kid from Harlem who plays in a street basketball tournament...the last is a collection of short stories surrounding 145th Street in Harlem.

I concur.

I figured something like Garvey might be sort of to your liking, based on the malcolm X and Fredrick Douglas pic and quote in your sig.

Don't be stingy now, lol, what Garvey book you reading? I need to finish the one i'm reading as well, but i'm looking to purchase some more books for my extremely thin library.

The illest books ever in my opinion:

The Karl May pockets starring Old Shatterhand and Winnetou. Some wild wild west shit. I love these books. Karl May also wrote loads of stories about Old Shatterhand as Kara Ben Nemsi. Stories in the Middle-East. Shit is fucking dope.

Pffft. I have no idea man. The writer is German and I know it's pretty popular in Europe. There was a television serie, comic-book, movie. Loads of merchandising. But I don't know if it hitted the USA too. I guess there is an English translation, 'cause I do know it was published in loads of languages.

There is so much cool stuff in these books about native Americans. Forgotten languages, how they lived, the racism between the 'palefaces' and the 'redskins', the whole making fo the railroad, the old American cities. Too much. The adventures are great. Sometimes it's on some Indiana Jones shit and sometimes it's like The Good, The Bad and The Ugly. It's pure adventure.
I got all these books from my dad
