Sister Souljah is an American hip hop-generation author, activist, recording artist, and film producer. A graduate of Rutgers University, she is the former executive director of Daddy’s House Social Programs, Inc., a non-profit corporation for urban youth. She is the author of No Disrespect, an autobiography; and the novels A Deeper Love Inside: the Porsche Santiaga Story and the Midnight series. In A Moment of Silence (Atria) Sister Souljah returns to the story of Midnight, a young man searching for love and fulfillment across the globe. Having returned from a worldwide journey to reclaim his wife, Akemi, Midnight returns to Queens, where he hopes to create a new, less tumultuous life with his love. But things fall apart when violence targets his younger sister Naja. From Japan to New York City, Midnight is back in action on the mean city streets and ready to fight for love.
