Synopsis:

As a public school teacher, Joe Marshall was devastated by the number of kids he was losing to prison or early, crime-related death. Finding that neither the justice nor school system seemed willing even to try to help, he co-founded the Omega Boys Club, based upon the belief that young people of the inner city want a way out of the life theyre in, but dont know how to find one. Since the clubs inception in 1987, he and his small army of street soldiers have helped 600 kids out of trouble, and sent 140 to college. His weekly radio call-in program, "Street Soldiers," is now broadcast throughout California to an audience of over 200,000. Through it, Joe reaches out to inner-city kids and offers them a practical resource for hope.The story of Joe Marshall's incredible undertaking and tremendous success, Street Soldier is filled with tense confrontations and joyous celebrations. It is an uplifting story by and about one man who is making a difference--not only in hundreds of young lives, but for future generations as well.


Review:

"It's obvious from this book why Marshall has received numerous national awards, including a MacArthur Foundation fellowship, and one can only hope 'Street Soldier' gets the word out in a big way."

Chris Goodrich, Los Angeles Times Book Review, 04/21/1996

Review:

"Joseph Marshall's 'Street Soldier' is a story of the transforming power of commitment and grassroots work. In 1987 Marshall founded the Omega Boys Club of Oakland, California, an after school program that provided otherwise at-risk kids with guidance, a sounding board, and plenty of encouragement to steer clear of violence and drugs.....Reminiscent of Geoffrey Canada's 1995 'Fist Stick Knife Gun' (Beacon) , 'Street Soldier' restores faith in the future and encourages anyone with the recognition of a social ill to contribute time and energy to change it."

Quarterly Black Review of Books, Winter 1997
