About the Author
Ishmael Graham was born on what is called the ‘Northend’ of Detroit in one of the city’s toughest neighborhoods. He was drafted into the Army the year they had the biggest call up of the Vietnam War. The unit he was a part of trained to go to Vietnam, however half went to the jungles of Southeast Asia while the other half deployed to the ‘asphalt’ jungle on the Southside of Chicago. He came to realize, that was really two wars that the government was waging, and how horribly insane the entire conflict was. Here he was, a young black kid from Detroit with relatives living on the Southside, told to do what it took to stop the rebelling, shooting, and looting. One of the reasons American soldiers were seen as the enemy back then is because on both fronts, they fought against people who were fighting for their freedom over here and over there. He came home disappointed, angry, lost, and confused. He sought companionship in what is called ‘street life’. Thus, he is a graduate of the school of hard knocks along with later becoming a graduate of a four-year college university. He feels it is our duty to help plan a better life for ourselves, our children, and our children’s children.
