Preacher's Kid. Runaway. Gang Member. Juvenile Delinquent. Homosexual. Prostitute. Pimp. Thief. Crack Addict. Convict. These are just some of the labels that society has placed on Jose Calderon. But have you ever wanted to go beyond the surface and discover: -Why do good kids go "bad"? -What makes a "normal" person switch over to a life of crime? -What drives someone to self-destructive, addictive behavior? -What's in a person's mind in the last moments before suicide? -What happens when a person just stops caring? These questions and many more are explored with vivid detail in this powerful story that spans several decades & various social phenomena - from the birth of hip-hop in the Bronx to the flamboyant nightlife of Times Square, New York in the 1970s to the rise of the AIDS epidemic in San Francisco in the 1980s and beyond. Is There Beauty in a Crow? is a fascinating journey inside the mind of a former criminal, addict, and street entrepreneur who, at the brink of destruction, had his life turned around by God's amazing grace.
