Beschreibung

From the man who catapulted the Covenant with Black America to number one on the New York Times bestseller list comes a searing memoir of poverty, ambition, pain and atonment.

Tavis Smiley grew up in a family of thirteen in rural Indian, where money was scarce and the sight of other black faces even scarcer. Always an outsider because of his race, economic background, and Pentecostal religious beliefs, he was sustained by his family's love. But one day his world was shattered when his father brutally beat him, sending him to the hospital and then into foster care for a period of time. In What I Know for Sure, Smiley recounts how he overcame his painful history and became one of America's most popular media figures.

Engaging and compelling. . . . A down-home tale of how one survives, learns and grows in a discordant world into something bigger and better. Los Angeles Times A remarkable memoir about one of America s most popular media figures. Ebony Astounding. Philadelphia Inquirer Revealing. . . . May surprise even those fans who have followed his career for years. Essence
