An engrossing and counter view of one of the most dangerous elements of American urban history, this graphic novel tells the true story of Benjy Melendez, a Bronx legend who founded, at the end of the 1960s, the formidable Ghetto Brothers gang. From the seemingly bombed-out ravages of his neighborhood, wracked by drugs, poverty, and violence, he managed to extract an incredibly positive energy from this riot ridden era: his multiracial gang promoted peace rather than violence. Among its many accomplishments, the gang held weekly concerts on the streets or in abandoned buildings, which fostered the emergence of hip-hop.

Benjy Melendez, founder of the Ghetto Brothers street gang, social activist, and lead singer of the Ghetto Brothers band, now tells his story: a memoir of life as a late 1960s/early 1970s street gang member, of a musician on the cusp of stardom, a fighter for peace, and a man on a quest to reclaim his Jewish roots. With chilling detail and candor, Benjy Melendez opens up as never before in 'Ghetto Brother' (Benjy Melendez with Amir Said). Telling the story of his family, growing up first in the West Village in in the '60s, his family's forced move to the South Bronx, his life in a street gang, and his transformation to a peace ambassador, 'Ghetto Brother' is a riveting memoir that explores the human condition. Melendez takes us back to the forgotten New York of the late 1960s and early 1970s that gave rise to New York's infamous street gang era. But at its core, Ghetto Brother examines the route from boy to man in uncharted territory, and it renders a vivid portrait of what identity means and what happens when that identity dissolves and grows anew. Evocative and filled with the sights and sounds of a changing New York and a transformative life, 'Ghetto Brother' is the fascinating chronicle of a remarkable journey and an extraordinary leader.

No início dos anos 1970, os Ghetto Brothers tinham 2000 membros só no Bronx e preparavam-se para uma guerra com outras gangues que certamente iria resultar em uma carnificina entre os jovens. Foi quando Benjy Melendez convocou uma reunião com todos os líderes de gangues da cidade e fechou um histórico acordo de paz. O feito foi tão importante que Benjy inspirou a criação de romances e filmes como "Warriors - Os Selvagens da Noite", e é considerado o marco inicial da cultura hip hop. No texto de introdução do livro, o jornalista e crítico musical especializado em rap Jeff Chang explica os elos entre a pacificação promovida por Melendez e o surgimento do hip hop em Nova York.

Junior Washington, a family man serving eight years for manslaughter, forces himself to learn patience. His time behind bars is a small price to pay for his decision to defend his family—at any cost. When their safety is compromised by the unruly drug dealers in his neighborhood, he does what any father would do. But that’s not how the police say it all went down. Now, trapped behind bars and unable to keep them safe, his nightmare comes true on the outside—and he’s powerless to stop it. When Daryle, his only brother, becomes a drug dealer, Junior’s life spins into despair. When he learns that Daryle has now become his own best customer, Junior does what he needs to do. But before he can help his brother, he has to find a way to keep Daryle’s own bosses from exacting their deadly revenge. Desperate to save himself, Daryle strikes an atrocious deal with the drug dealers using Karla, Junior’s wife, and Lady, their fifteen-year-old daughter—and the price they are forced to pay to clear Daryle’s debt is indescribable. Finally out of prison, Junior fights to rebuild his shattered life and to save what is left of his wife and child. Driven by a blinding bloodlust, he begins to hunt the darker places of his neighborhood and life. But just as he gets close to the kill, he finds himself flat on his back, looking up into yet another long barrel of the law.
