Help is on the way : stay up and live your truth

Kountry Wayne 1987- (author.). Rivas, Mim Eichler, (author.). Cedric, the Entertainer, 1965- (author of foreword.).

Summary: "Before he was one of Variety's "10 Comics to Watch" and a comedy sensation followed by millions, Kountry Wayne found few legit options for a poor Black man coming from a small-minded country town in Georgia. For many years he turned to running his own game, but thankfully friends and family (and one patient probation officer) convinced him that he had talent beyond hustling. Once he began posting short sketches based on his on-the-nose Southern Black truths, wildly funny observations, and inspirational guidance, he became an almost overnight hit. Now a proud father of ten, Kountry Wayne is on a mission to give back. By sharing his seemingly impossible story, he hopes to help others see that no matter where you started from or how marginalized you feel right now, the possibilities for living a rich, full life are limitless"--
