Life Comes From Concrete: A Poetry Memoir by Kevin Anglade
How does a Haitian-American kid grow up feeling privileged on certain levels with a beautiful home, sisters, grandmother, two middle-class parents, well educated, disciplined, and well-mannered to experiencing heartbreak, sadness, despair and loneliness? How does he have a father that has always been his guidance, protector and mentor, who then ceases to exist due to vices? Now, he must embark upon the journey alone to figure out his purpose all while being a man for his family. How does he cope with it all? Where does he find the answers? Life Comes From Concrete is the story of an NYC poet by the name of Kevin Anglade. Known as Kev Elev on stage when performing, LCFC tells the story of how an adolescent teenager transforms himself into a critical thinking black man living in America. This is Anglade's rite-of-passage documented in literary form through life and poetry.
