After Tackling Difficulties, Believe in the Possibility for Good in Life
by Cloteal Jones & Deshawn Jackson

If you are black and accused of a crime, you’re in for a real good fight
Because, as a black man, you have no rights
The courts give you a lawyer who gets paid no matter what
He’s studying to become a DA and
He’s the person you’re supposed to trust

In this collection of poetry coauthored by one black mother, Cloteal, and her son, Deshawn, true tales of heartbreak, discrimination, cheating, beating, and ultimately God’s grace remind us what being human is all about, regardless of our race.

Together, they write meditations on motherhood, the war in Iraq, and feelings in general, all of which comes straight from the heart.

In Cloteal’s poem “What did Martin Luther King Die For?” we, as his brothers and sisters, are reminded what Dr. King’s message is all about: standing up straight and rising above the actions against which we have been discriminated.

As touching as it is enlightening, After Tackling Difficulties is an important read for anyone who has an important mother or child, or who wishes to understand the struggles of black people everywhere.
