About the Book
The true Harlem. Not the city portrayed in the cinematic universe. Underground. Hardcore. Making and snatching dreams. Some deferred, others manifested. Creating sons and daughters who embrace the good with the bad and make their own universe.
In Harlem’s Son, author and artist Nathaniel Stepney takes readers on his astounding journey while growing up as a young boy in New York City. With the odds stacked against him, Nathaniel overcame the hard reality of his desire to live in an environment intended to break him, to embrace the rich culture’s glorious uniqueness, innovation, and language all its own. Be inspired by photos of Nathaniel’s brilliant paintings, heartfelt poetry and prose which transcend words on a page, they capture the emotions of readers escorting them through the Chronicles of an Artist.
