This uplifting story of Kweisi Mfume's struggle from "the mean streets to the mainstream" is presented with encouraging authority. Mfume tells in gripping detail the story of how his mother's strength and wisdom influenced his early life, how he strayed and became a street tough in West Baltimore, and how he was spiritually reborn, an experience which led him to become the president of the NAACP. Mfume's message--no one should expect something for nothing--is indicative of his entire performance; his certitude and commanding voice illustrate the hard road he's traveled. Anyone who has ever felt discouraged by the apparent downward spiral of today's youth will relish the message of hope in NO FREE RIDE. R.A.P. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: FEB 97]
