Father Behind Bars: A Story of Responsibility That Affects Everyone in America

Front Cover
"This is a powerfully written story of how the soul and mind can survive against tremendous odds, and how they can rise to that greatest of all levels: the level of service to some of the forgotten people of this society."
--Ossie Davis
"Actor, Director, Playwright, and Humanitarian" "A true and compelling insight into human nature and the struggle to love, be loved, and to create and achieve in the face of circumstances that all too often vanquish all hope. This story has powerful lessons for people on both sides of prison walls."
--Patricia J. Williams
"Professor, Columbia University School of Law & Fellow, Center for Advanced Studies in Behavioral Sciences, Stanford University" "An engaging and endearing story of hope and uncompromising will. Seldom are black men, or for that matter black women, presented in either fiction or non-fiction as being real, morally purposeful, and so rational. A truly fine story that is at once moving, entertaining, and instructive."
--Charles Lynch, Ph.D.
"Seton Hall University" "Inspiring and engrossing. A well-told story whose realism and truth is undeniable."
--Walter Mosely

I met and knew Mr. Authur Hamilton when I was a G.E.D. teacher and he was an inmate for the Michigan Department of Corrections in Michigan. I have since bought many books to share with men, both young and old, in the African/American Communities. This book has touched and reshaped the lives of many men and made them responsible adults. I sincerely hope that Mr. Arthur Hamilton is speaking to a lot youth groups around the country as he attempts to reshape of inner city youths in our country and around the world. I hope this book becomes a Best Seller and I hope that one youth, black or white, decides that his life is to be a better father and humanbeing!
