The Tempest Tales, an Essence Book Club Recommended Read, features Tempest Landry, a black man shot down by an over-eager cop. But that's not the end of the line for Tempest.

Worth every second

Great listen. Could not tear away from the story and the narration. Truly a philosophical masterpiece in words and images.
