From The Dark Side is a book about how life in america is viewed from the paradigm of "the darker brother." A. Shakur Towns uses poetry and short stories to give a report on being black in the post-slavery, post-reconstruction, post-civil rights and post-911 urban community. More than just samples of flowery words and prose, the book reads like a survival manual for sanity! "I like to think of my writing as antidote to plantation psychosis, or at least an assessment of our present condition as descendants of enslaved africans." From The Dark Side gives us a painful, angry, love-based, and oft times funny glimpse into what being a black man REALLY feels like. A. Shakur Towns and his wife Nikki have four daughters. They live in Trenton, NJ. Shakur is a graduate of Lincoln University's MHS Program, where he received his Master of Human Services degree in 2002. He is currently a Program Coordinator for a corrections/mental health project.

    Shakur Towns “From the Darkside” is a instant classic in the literary world! This magnificent book contains 37 titles with a mixture of both poetry and short stories that will easily absorb you into a reading frenzy while enticing your imagination for more. The depth and word manipulation is simply beautiful. Yeah… this is that good good. For writers who love to write, you will be inspired and for the non writer, your thirst will be quenched. Excellent work my brother and i will be eagerly awaiting more from you.
