A raw and inspirational memoir about growing up in the housing projects of Red Hook and Baltimore—a brutal world Where Tomorrows Aren't Promised.
A leader, pioneer, and champion on the basketball court, Carmelo Anthony has led a storied career as both a ten-time NBA All-Star and three-time Olympic gold medalist. Anthony’s incredible career on the court has paved the way for his many other brands, business ventures, and philanthropic efforts on a global platform, but lesser known are the seemingly immeasurable odds the All-Star overcame growing up amidst poverty, racism, violence, mental illness, and a broken education system.
Anthony’s roots propel his passion for giving back to those who need it most, and in 2005 he founded The Carmelo Anthony Foundation as a vehicle for actionable change through a variety of community outreach programs, disaster relief initiatives, and donations. Today, Anthony remains a leading voice at the forefront of the ongoing fight for social justice, championing actionable change that pushes society and the next generation forward.For more on this author and his memoir visit https://www.simonandschuster.com/authors/Carmelo-Anthony/174979325.
