Fist Stick Knife Gun: A Personal History of Violence in America

by Geoffrey Canada. Beacon Press, 2010.

'Fist Stick Knife Gun' integrates real stories with tangible solutions. A brutally honest account of a childhood in the Bronx, this book presents a personal history of violence in America and a hopeful plea for the salvation of the children caught in today's crossfire. Geoffrey Canada is willing not only to discuss this crisis, but also to offer firsthand solutions. One example is the Countee Cullen Community Center in Harlem, which provides unity, education, and safety for the neighboring community.
