Sampson Davis, George Jenkins, and Rameck Hunt are not only friends to this day—they are all doctors.

Editorial Reviews

"This is truly a life-changing book, one that shows that anything is possible...with a little help from our friends."—James McBride, author of The Color of Water and Miracle at St. Anna



"A powerful message of hope."—Dallas Morning News



"Gripping, courageous, and inspiring."—Philadelphia Inquirer



"After you've read it, pass it on...The Pact is a book that should never end up on a shelf because it is probably the most important book for African-American families that has been written since the protest era...Besides their personal stories, the doctors share practical steps that can be useful to a circle of friends in making their own pact...Get The Pact. It just may change a teen's future."—Chicago Sun-Times

    This is an awesome,motivational, and inspiring story of how 3 young men changed their destiny in spite of their circumstances. My 11yr old son enjoyed the book so much that we will be attending their book signing for their next book called "The Bond." I recommend this book to anyone who enjoys reading stories about victory and triumph in the mist of adversity.
