Khalil's Way - Written by David
Miller and Illsurtated by Jerry Craft. A book written and illustrated by
Black men for Black boys.
Khalil's Way is an exciting series of books for
youth ages 9-13. The second edition in the Khalil's Way series will be in stores
in June 2014.
Way was inspired by the thousands of children who shared traumatic stories about
being bullied in classrooms, locker rooms, and at bus stops, and countless other
is an 11-year-old boy who lives in a tough neighborhood and is the victim of a
school bully. Khalil is an amazing chess player but struggles to make friends.
He's not the coolest kid you'll ever meet, plus his mom and dad split up after
their family lost everything during Hurricane Katrina.

accepted and valued. This means that adults must create schools, playgrounds and
other spaces where children are free of teasing, name-calling, harassment,
threats and all forms of violence and intimidation.
