IN BLACK IN WHITE
(Subtitle: PreppyZ From The Hood).
young, black, from hardcore Harlem Park of the sixties, plucked from
his community and educated in a New England prep school...creating the
man he was to become from the fertile soil of both worlds ~ M. Broom
"IN BLACK IN WHITE is a highly entertaining, honestly told personal
story. In the opinion of this judge, the book's key strength is Mr.
Woody's incredibly natural style of writing. Interspersing slang and
vernacular freely with standard grammar and usage, he does a great job
of rendering the gritty city experiences that shaped him. The reader
gets vivid picture after vivid picture, with lots of interesting
details. Mr. Woody also does a good job representing the core values
that he took away from his family and the streets, as well as the
unusual experience of his being ripped from familiar surroundings and
transplanted to a high-toned prep school thanks to a scholarship
program. Overall, an engrossing memoir of a life well lived."
