New Date! Sat. October 25, 2:00 pm 
Author Reading & Book Signing 
with Jean Love Cush  
 
It is with the overwhelming support of the author that we are changing the date of her in-store appearance at Revolution Books to enable everyone to answer the call to go to Ferguson, MO the same weekend, Oct. 10-13. Now we can all meet the author on Oct. 25 too!
 
The call has been issued by Hands Up United, Organization for Black Struggle, and a coalition of local and national organizations demanding justice for Mike Brown and an end to police violence and racial profiling. We urge everyone who can to go!
 
Endangered: A Novel 
An innocent black teenager is accused of murder in this provocative and compassionate thriller that skillfully probes issues of race, class, crime, and injustice and offers a searing portrait of modern America.
 

Unable to see her son or pay for his defense, Janae, a cafeteria worker, reluctantly allows Roger Whitford, a white human rights attorney, to represent Malik. With the help of an ambitious private attorney named Calvin Moore, Roger is determined to challenge the entire criminal justice system and expose its inherent racism-racism that threatens the very existence of America's young black men.
 

Offering a startling and unprecedented defense, the lawyers spark a national firestorm of debate over race, prison, and politics that burns to the very core of Janae herself. As she battles to save her son, she begins to discover that she is also fighting for her own survival and that of her community.
