"THE UNTOLD AUTOBIOGRAPHY"
BY RICK ROSS WITH CATHY SCOTT
Freeway Rick Ross: The Untold Autobiography is an intimate look at the day-to-day dealings of a drug kingpin in the heart of the ghetto. It's also the story of a boy born in poverty Texas who grew up in a single-parent household in the heart of South Central, who was pushed through the school system each year and came out illiterate. His options were few, and he turned to drug dealing.
This Untold Autobiography is not only personal, but also historical in its implications. Rick Ross chronicles the times by highlighting the social climate that made crack cocaine so desirable, and he points out that at the time, the "cops in the area didn't know what crack was; they didn't associate the small white rocks they saw on homies as illegal drugs." All Rick Ross knew was people wanted it.
Freeway Literacy Foundation holds as it's core vision to ensure people no matter their background feel empowered by words. The reality is that too often many of our youth do not feel words have power. It's our goal to unlock the power of words through exposure to leadership, entrepreneurial and literacy skills training. It is here they will see the impact of the power of literacy with their own eyes.____________
