Cry Tough! free pdf "An inspiring coming of age story...a must read for anyone who has ever felt or fought racism!" Nyahbinghi Price, Educator In 1915, the D.W. Griffith film, The Birth of a Nation, sliced open a deep wound of racism that still festers throughout the world today.

They meet one day playing in a park, and could have been lifelong friends, but wrong decisions, parental influence and societal ills pit them on a collision course of hate and destruction. Berry is author of "The Honeyman's Son," and co-author of the film resource books, "The 50 Most Influential Black Films" and "Historical Dictionary of African American Cinema - (paperback) The A to Z of African American Cinema."
