Description
 
Not all legend is about victory. Sometimes its about the struggle. Spearheaded by the medias portrayal of African American men, it is believed by many, that most urban inner-city youth will be dead or in jail by twenty-five. Although clich, with high school drop-out rates escalating and unemployment impacting minorities much more severely than other races, todays urban youth who lack hope and direction, have embraced dying young or spending the rest of their lives in prison. Faced with some of the same challenges and growing up under the same conditions, how, then, did one grow up to be more than what society expected and predicted? More afraid of being labeled "dumb," than dying or going to prison, Chris, with book smarts, street smarts and common sense, earned both a Bachelors and Masters Degree by the age of twenty-four, defying the odds and showing what is possible for all urban youth when they discover their purpose. Chris Sain Jr. the author of Dumb Athlete, an incredibly inspiring memoir, reveals his journey through the first twenty-four years of his life and what anyone can do to make it out and make a difference.
