Survival Math: Notes on an All-American Family by Mitchell S. Jackson; Narrated by Mitchell S. Jackson
Simon & Schuster Audio
Publication Date: March 5, 2019
Mitchell S. Jackson begins his own story by tracing his family’s mid-century migration from Montgomery, Alabama, to Portland, Oregon. Caught up in the petty crime and hustle of his community, young Mitchell was incarcerated for drug activity before clawing his way to graduate school New York, and, eventually, the academy. Jackson’s expansive memoir is a tour-de-force of candor and penitence.
