Black Klansman
The #1 New York Times Bestseller! The extraordinary true story and basis for the Academy Award winning film BlacKkKlansman, written and directed by Spike Lee, produced by Jordan Peele, and starring John David Washington and Adam Driver. When detective Ron Stallworth, the first black detective in the history of the Colorado Springs Police Department, comes across a classified ad in the local paper asking for all those interested in joining the Ku Klux Klan to contact a P.O. box, Detective Stallworth does his job and responds with interest, using his real name while posing as a white man. He figures he’ll receive a few brochures in the mail, maybe even a magazine, and learn more about a growing terrorist threat in his community. A few weeks later the office phone rings, and the caller asks Ron a question he thought he’d never have to answer, “Would you like to join our cause?” This is 1978, and the KKK is on the rise in the United States. Its Grand Wizard, David Duke, has made a name for himself, appearing on talk shows, and major magazine interviews preaching a “kinder” Klan that wants nothing more than to preserve a heritage, and to restore a nation to its former glory. Ron answers the caller’s question that night with a yes, launching what is surely one of the most audacious, and incredible undercover investigations in history. Ron recruits his partner Chuck to play the "white" Ron Stallworth, while Stallworth himself conducts all subsequent phone conversations. During the months-long investigation, Stallworth sabotages cross burnings, exposes white supremacists in the military, and even befriends David Duke himself. Black Klansman is an amazing true story that reads like a crime thriller, and a searing portrait of a divided America and the extraordinary heroes who dare to fight back.

Bringing the Noise
The title, "Bringing The Noise," is a term frequently used within the rap community to refer to the process of agitating the "system" (the institutions of government) or to instill a sense of "revolution." Gangster-reality rap illustrates and illuminates the dark side of the American dream for a large segment of America's youthful population. From the perceptual experiences of the rappers it is more of a nightmare. It literally screams at us to listen. As Academy Award winning actress, Grammy winning singer, and acclaimed movie director Barbara Streisand has stated, "Rap music may make your flesh crawl, but you can't ignore its message of hopelessness." You can like or dislike the messages in gangster-reality rap music. You cannot, however, ignore its rage and the conditions which--to the rappers--brought about that rage. You should not!

Gangsta Code
What is the "G-Code," the Gangsta Code, and what is the meaning behind its expression in gangster rap lyrics? How does this code influence the attitude and actions of young people across the sociological spectrum of American society? We fear the unknown. To many in the mainstream--white as well as black--rap and hip-hop culture represent a vast and frightening unknown. That fear is greatly exacerbated because in most instances it involves sons and daughters, nieces and nephews... grandchildren. If, however, we step into the void of that unknown and acclimate ourselves to the unique conditions within it, the fear dissipates.
