Most people associate Hill Harper with Hollywood, as he's appeared in dozens of
films and television shows. But he is just as comfortable in a school
auditorium, rousing groups of students with his unique style of real-life
wisdom. Having addressed thousands of high-school and middle-school students
over the years, Hill is ready to take his message to an even wider audience.
Letters to a Young Brother is drawn from the humbling life lessons he learned
on the road to his Ivy League education and beyond. Inspired by the countless
letters and e-mails he has received from teens, Hill Harper set out to write a
series of letters to young people that would catch the attention of even the
most reluctant readers.
The result is a motivational but approachable book
full of encouragement on a wide array of hot topics, particularly among young
African-American and Hispanic men. From the challenges of getting a good
education and making it through college to the media's destructive emphasis on
material wealth, Letters to a Young Brother delivers eye-opening answers.
Reminiscent of Marian Wright Edelman's New York Times bestseller, The Measure
of Our Success: A Letter to My Children and Yours, Hill Harper's words will
resonate for years to come.
