by William Arnold

"Exodus" is one man's journey to find meaning and understanding in a life wrought with tragedy and hardship. Blessed with countless talents and unmatched tenacity, he braves countless obstacles and inner demons in his quest to transcend the ghetto; not only the one in his community but the one in his mind.
This autobiographical journey details the evolution of a ghetto-child who struggles to transcend the ghetto, physically and mentally, on his path to manhood. William, born and raised in the slums of Atlanta, Georgia, awakens to a life that seems to offer obstacles and tragedies behind every twist and turn. In a quest to fulfill his purpose and destiny to live through his God-given talents and passions, he stumbles again and again through tragedy after tragedy, nearly ending up as just another statistic. After a life-altering epiphany, he gathers his strength and makes one final attempt to break generational curses and defeat the most dangerous enemy he's ever faced--the ghetto in his mind. Does the ghetto actually exist in the physical world, or is it really just a function of the mind? What does it actually mean to "make it out"? These are the questions the Author seeks to answer, not only for the reader, but also for himself.
About the author
William "Will Power" Arnold is an attorney and artist who devotes his life to the service of the same Atlanta communities he was raised in. As an author, poet, rapper and painter, the role William prides himself on most is his status as a husband and father. William takes great care as a creator to redefine what it means to be a child of the ghetto, an artist, and a lawyer. As a graduate of Colgate University (B.A. English 2005) and Georgia State University's College of Law (J.D. 2014), William's aim has always been to blend his educational pursuits into his artistic undertakings, with the ultimate aim of evoking change in his community.
