Summary
Making a pact to stick together through the rough times in their impoverished Newark neighborhood, three boys found the strength and determination to work through their difficulties in order to complete high school, get through college, and attend medical school together. Sampson, George, and Rameck could easily have followed their childhood friends into drug dealing, gangs, and prison. When they met in high school, they recognized in each other the desire and ability to "beat the street." Along the way they made mistakes, faced disappointments, and nearly failed, but by working hard, finding positive role models, resisting negative influences, and supporting each other at every turn, they achieved their goals, and more. Today they call themselves the Three Doctors, and work in the same community where they grew up--where they run The Three Doctors Foundation, creating opportunities for inner-city communities through education, mentoring, and health awareness.--From publisher description
