If Harlem Could Talk It would Scream : Short Stories in Harlem Noire

Description

If there are 8 million stories in the naked city then Harlem has a million. Most of them can be told by one of its greatest inhabitants - black men. Fame greed love and a sense of purpose are the common denominator. But with new real estate, economic resurgence and a greater divide between the haves and have nots there voices have been lost. Listen to a small time drug dealer as he makes a name in the crack game. He will soon learn that it's not what not what you do that matters, but what you say that does. Then there's the rehabilitated writer who returns back to Harlem a place where his past and present collide and only he can tell the difference. Unbeknownst to him he is about to write his greatest work - his life. Then there's the jazz connoisseur who watches with apprehension as the young rapper moves into his building. This sets into motion a chain of events, which proves change if even not welcomed is inevitable. These are some of the voices of men who scream because they can't be heard
