I live in an upper middle class community, with a three car drive way green lawn.. the heole nine yards.. I attend a good school and I will be graduating next year. I have just recently finished reading your book. Your book was a real eye opening experiance for me, Before reading your book I was complete unaware of life outside my world. I now have a better understanding of my own people and even more respect and a new found appreciation for the struggles and hardships in which they are going through. Thank you for wriing the book and have a great day
Angela Cox posts on 7/10/2007 1:29:53 AM I'm a teen librarian in Richmond,CA. I read this book some years back but still find the questions, issues and frustration of young African American males (and females)to be the same today. This is a book I'm reading with my daughter and have recommended to many young men. I want them to know that in this society your anger will put you at a crossroad and to use the tools (family, community, determination, and faith) at hand. In our culture we have forgotten that although we have technology, we have not embraced the wisdom to survive that are ancestors had.

sam wheat posts on 6/23/2007 8:15:39 PM I just want to say that everything that happened in your life was due to bad decisions on your part. Maybe you should not have stolen, raped and owned weaponry! Prison was the good thing in your life to set you straight!
P. Perry posts on 11/25/2006 6:49:16 PM Mr. McCall, I'd just like to know if you're working on another book? Looking forward to it.
LaTanya Gibbs posts on 11/20/2006 6:55:04 PM Mr. McCall, I just got finish reading your book "Makes Me Wanna Holler" and it was superb. I read the book for the first time in college 14 years ago and purchased the book again recently. It's more profound now than it was then. Being a native of Norfolk-Hampton Roads, its good to know that behind every failure is a success and you're evidence of that.

Stan Smith posts on 11/14/2006 11:48:09 AM I just finished reading your book Make me Wanna Holla...I thoroughly enjoyed it. I am passing throughout my crew...My barber is from Portsmouth and is down here in ATL. He had mentioned you as an inspiration to write his story and I just so happened to be reading your book...small world, so to speak. When does the next one "drop"?
