AmeriKKKan JustUS is the story of a young African-American man's journey through the court system. Evocative and deeply personal, this novel gives a first-person account of racism in the justice system.

Author DaLena Slayton is a new voice in Black American fiction, and she creates a powerful portrait of a young man finding his way in a sometimes hostile society.

The world is black and white, but Rilei tends to live in a gray area until life forces him to open his eyes. From his sheltered childhood to his rude awakening to reality, Rilei is forced to learn how to be a survivor in the ghetto streets of Akron, Ohio.

Being a survivor also means that he'll have to learn how to accept that the world doesn't come in different shades of gray, and that he is on the wrong side of black and white. When he enters the criminal justice system, he finds it rigged against him from the beginning. Can Rilei tell his story and change the fate society has written for him? On the wrong side of the color line, is American justice possible, or is it just us?

Buy AmeriKKKan JustUS to learn Rilei's story, American criminal justice through the eyes of one Black man.
