If you could pick one song to describe this book, what would it be?
I honestly think the song I would pick is the song "I know I Can" by the rapper Nas. In this song, Nas emphasizes to the youth that they can achieve anything through hard work and intelligence. He also dives into some world history in the song which flows in suit with the foundational message in the book.
