Summary "Racially profiled and wrongfully imprisoned during his second year at Harvard Law School, hip-hop activist Bryonn Bain successfully sued the New York City Police Department and wrote the Village Voice cover story "Walking While Black." Now Bain has taken his own disturbing experiences of racial profiling and personal demoralization and turned them into teachable moments for an entire nation. The Ugly Side of Beautiful takes an unflinching look at the injustices of our prison system and strives to help us think outside the cage."--Amazon.com.
