Overview
If you're passionate about the need for economic empowerment, overhauling the public-school system, ending mass incarceration, reforming black male culture, or even wondering "What's the big deal?" this book is a must read for you. Raising Cain shines a light on the many ways black males have been abused, misunderstood and left behind by mainstream America, and even their own community. This book also examines the effects of racism, and underscores the role black male culture has played in perpetuating negative stereotypes. Furthermore, it celebrates the immense contributions that black males have made in society, while demanding effective leadership from community ambassadors and America's public institutions.
Description

Raising Cain celebrates the immense contributions that black males have made in society, while demanding effective leadership from community ambassadors and America’s public institutions. Greg Salter uses Raising Cain to share personal accounts of mistreatment by law-enforcement, real-life lessons he learned from his father and advocates for a pragmatic approach to bridging the gap between opposing world views. This literary work is truly a call to action written to rally the black community around its greatest asset and serve as a wake-up call to America by reminding everyone of the brilliance and potential men of color exude.

Greg Salter is a husband, father, mentor and now author of his first manuscript Raising Cain - The Plight of the Black Male in America. He is also an entrepreneur at heart, and has owned multiple businesses including Triumfant Muzik, Blue Print Media Group and the Copy Corner. His passion for empowering men of color was ignited and fueled through various life experiences, as a former FAMU student, basketball coach for UPWARD, board member for the Golden Triangle YMCA, financial literacy speaker at multiple colleges and universities around Central Florida, and inner city outreach coordinator for Love Center Church. As a young man growing up in Ft. Pierce, FL, he witnessed the devastating effects of violent crime, drug abuse, systemic oppression and inadequate education.
