Summary
Peace was a talented young African-American man who escaped the slums of Newark for Yale University, only to succumb to the dangers of the streets-- and of one's own nature-- when he returned home. When Hobbs arrived at Yale University, he became fast friends Peace, his college roommate for four years. Peace's life was rough from the beginning in the crime-ridden streets of Newark in the 1980s, and he carried with him the difficult dual nature of his existence, "fronting" in Yale, and at home. Through an honest rendering of Peace's relationships, Hobbs examines the collision of two fiercely insular worlds
