Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0985502401, Paperback)

What do you get when a father, who came of age in the Black Power and Black is Beautiful Generation, attempts to raise a son coming of age in the Hip Hop Generation? You get two views of reality, psychological warfare, harmony, disharmony, hope, and ongoing transformation.

Coming of Age in the Hip Hop Generation: Warrior of the Void is a co-authored father-son memoir. It is written in the son's voice and covers the first 18 years of his life growing up African American and Puerto Rican in Brooklyn.

The void is the space that exists between who we are and who we are called to become. It is the space where we encounter so many flamboyant demons while our few guardian angels often remain hidden from sight. Demons often choose not to appear horrific; they most often choose to appear enchanting. Warrior of the Void presents Askia Akhenaton's faith-affirming journey through the first 18 years of the void.

Come inside for an intimate and unique examination of: innocence and harmony; love and heartbreak; sex education and mis-education from parents, teens, the Internet, teachers, and musicians; disharmony and the fight for independence and self-identity; racial profiling and stop-and-frisk encounters with the police; mind manipulation to create a pervasive and negative image of black and Latino males; American his-story vs. history; the spell of video games, music, sports, and social media; 12th grade senioritis and its cure; and God, faith, and family.
