Ida B. Wells-Barnett Tower. The place held such promise when it was built in the late 1970s. It was Harlems hope for a new beginning -- an affordable, safe residence for people who couldnt afford to live downtown. But that was more than twenty-fiveMoreIda B. Wells-Barnett Tower. The place held such promise when it was built in the late 1970s. It was Harlems hope for a new beginning -- an affordable, safe residence for people who couldnt afford to live downtown. But that was more than twenty-five years ago, before the devastating crack scourge hit. But the residents of Ida B.

are resilient. Theyve built their own community and they look out for one another to the best of their abilities. Neighbors may argue, and even fight, but whenever one of them is in trouble, the whole building rallies around. 25-year-old Brenda Carver is a welfare mother of 4 children longing to be a writer- Rosa Rivera is an aspiring actress who will let nothing stand in the way of her career- Sharif Goldsby is a political activist determined to change the world, starting with Harlem and the Ida B.

Theres also Miss Jackie, the middle-aged, back-stabbing gossip- Vincent, the former bank robber turned scam artist- Mrs. Harris, the elderly neighborhood fence- and high school honor student Ricky, who hopes to be one of the scramblers on the corner - hawking crack to passersby. When a building resident kills herself and two of her children, the tenants make a collective vow to care for her surviving child.

But thats just the beginning of the tragedies facing the residents of the Ida B. A shocking crime occurs in the building, and everyone becomes a suspect. With accusations flying, the tight community begins to collapse under the strain. Finally, they learn that their home of more than 20 years is about to be torn down. As the search for the killer intensifies, unsung heroes step forward - at great personal risk - to right the wrongs that have been done. In the authors world, the people who stand out are those who survive, and go on, against all odds, to share their wisdom and find their dreams.
