Have You Heard of Purple PasturesHave You Heard of Purple Pastures : Raymon Reed and Esther Arce-Reed ~ Illustrated by Chad Thompson

We Could Be BrothersWe Could Be Brothers - Hardcover (Nov. 1, 2010) by Derrick Barnes, Other: Hardcover ~ In this much anticipated middle grade novel by author Derrick Barnes (Ruby & the Booker Boys) two thirteen- year-old African-American boys become friends during a three day stint in an after school suspension. They were both involved in two unrelated incidents with the same person, the resident menace at Alain Locke Middle, Tariq Molten. We Could Be Brothers addresses the presence and lack of positive male leadership in the home, and how it dictates the way young African American men view themselves, each other, and the world around them. Mentorship, brotherhood, and an emphasis on that old adage "each-one-teach-one" are very real and tangible themes in this new YA literary masterpiece.

We Beat the StreetWe Beat the Street: How a Friendship Led to Success by Sampson Davis, George Jenkins, Rameck Hunt, Sharon M. Draper (Hardcover - April 21, 2005) Sampson, George, and Rameck could easily have followed their childhood friends into drug dealing, gangs, and prison. Like their peers, they came from poor, single-parent homes in urban neighborhoods where survival, not scholastic success, was the priority. When the three boys met in a magnet high school in Newark, they recognized each other as kindred spirits who wanted to overcome the incredible odds against them and reach for opportunity. They made a friendship pact, deciding together to take on the biggest challenge of their lives: attending college and then medical school. Along the way they made mistakes and faced disappointments, but by working hard, finding the right mentors, separating themselves from negative influences, and supporting each other, they achieved their goals—and more. (Reading level: Ages 9-12)
