You may think rapper Luther Campbell (formerly of 2 Live Crew) is the kind of guy you would find in a dance club or on a crazy reality show. But the truth is that these days, he is likely to be found coaching football to inner-city kids, or at a city council meeting, fighting to get more funding for education, housing, or youth programs.
It may be surprising to some, but Luther has been fighting for justice for himself and others his entire life. And, at a time when our communities are under attack from violence at black churches, rioting, police brutality, abysmal public education, and poverty, Lutherâ€™s amazing life story THE BOOK OF LUKE: My Fight for Truth, Justice, and Liberty City shows how one person can change a community, a countryâ€”even the world.
Born in Miamiâ€™s notorious Liberty City neighborhood, Luther saw poverty, despair, and crime firsthand. His Uncle Ricky didnâ€™t want him to get trapped by the â€œinvisible chainsâ€ of systemic racism, and schooled him on the necessity of a man â€œowning his own assâ€â€”controlling his own livelihood and owning property (land and/or home).
