Q: What inspired you to write "The Dream?"

A: Armagedon According To Me (Crack Posse Memories) 1985-1989 from "RENAISSANCE RICAN" © 2012 It was with a great sense of trepidation that I returned to the Bronx in the spring of 1985. Not because of the neighborhood. I always felt safe there. But that fall I was to return to Amherst College for my senior year and the place never held any sense of love for me. Talk about being a fish out of water. 1985 It was Spring and I was Blind I no longer knew anyone from my original graduating class (1979). They had long gone. I was 26 years old, divorced with a four year old daughter and accustomed to having money from being a TV producer. The prospect of not having that income while completing two semesters of easy schooling (I had already finished all my requirements for my BA with just a thesis to finish) weighed heavily on my mind. Then I fell in completely with the 213th Street Gun Hill West Indian Posse formed by my childhood friend, Kevin (or as he was known in those days as "The Red Dread".) We had met at CYO summer camp in 1968 held at Holy Rosary School near Coop City. Being the only two island boys in the primarily white kids camp we became fast friends. He lived on 213th Street which began being populated by a flourishing West Indian community then arriving in the Bronx. As happens in many a Bronx youth's history, a small gang of us formed comprised of West Indians, African Americans and three other Puerto Ricans from the vicinity. It was a reaction to the Black Spades who had invaded the neighborhood led by a character named Ham. They too were a mixed lot affiliated with the Spades Rainbow Division headed by later heavyweight Boxer Mitch "Blood" Green out of Harlem (and which produced Afrika Bambaataa the legendary Hip Hop impresario in the Bronx.) Kevin had been smoking marijuana since he was fifteen and attending All Hallows High School while I went to Cardinal Hayes and avoided drinking or drugging less my parents kill me.
