Jamar Nicholas of Arcadia’s Fine Arts Department was featured in The Philadelphia Daily News Dec. 14 for his gripping illustration of Geoffrey Canada’s “Fist, Stick, Knife, Gun: A Personal History of Violence.”

“Jamar Nicholas called on his experience growing up in West Philadelphia and Germantown when he illustrated Fist, Stick, Knife, Gun: A Personal History of Violence, a graphic depiction of Geoffrey Canada's tale of growing up in the South Bronx," reports Ashley Huber of the Philadelphia Daily News.

Nicholas was quoted as saying, "I really hope this book can open people's minds up to the plight of young men. A lot of people can connect with it but I want people who normally would not read something like this to pick it up so they can understand, too." Read more.
