Boy @ The Window

A Memoir

This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.


As a preteen Black male growing up in Mount Vernon, New York in the 1980s, there were a series of moments, incidents and wounds that caused me to retreat inward in despair and escape into a world of imagination. For five years I protected my family secrets from authority figures, affluent Whites and middle class Blacks while attending an unforgiving gifted-track magnet school program that itself was embroiled in suburban drama. It was my imagination that shielded me from the slights of others, that enabled my survival and academic success. It took everything I had to get myself into college and out to Pittsburgh, but more was in store before I could finally begin to break from my past.

Boy @ The Window is a coming-of-age story about the universal search for understanding on how any one of us becomes the person they are despite—or because of—the odds. It's a memoir intertwined with my own search for redemption, trust, love, success—for a life worth living. Boy @ The Window is about one of the most important lessons of all: what it takes to overcome inhumanity in order to become whole and human again.
