New York Times Bestseller Packs the House at BCCC!
New York Times best-selling
Dr. Sampson Davis, co-author of
“The Pact,” “We Beat the Street” and “The Bond,” spoke to a packed house yesterday at the Fine
Arts Theatre as part of the Bard Library/Bookstore Author Series. Dr.
Davis read from his latest book, “Living and Dying in Brick City,” about
his journey growing up on the mean streets of Newark, N.J. to achieving a
mutual goal with friends of becoming a board-certified (emergency room)
“After all the years of school and
setting goals and trying to become somebody different, we would go back to
the old neighborhood and everything was the same – people selling drugs on
the street corners; neighbors and old friends still caught up in the same
lifestyle,” Dr. Davis said as he recalled what it was like to see one of his
boyhood friends on a stretcher heading to the morgue after being shot, and
realizing that could have been him. “The fact is you can make choices,” he
said. “But you must have a goal and a plan.”
Davis has appeared on Oprah and NBC’s
Today show on numerous occasions. For
