The Kwame Sutra is the definitive volume on the rise and fall of Detroit Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick, told in his own words – including many he never expected the world to see. This slim but comprehensive volume recounts Kilpatrick’s career and the text message scandal that drove him from office and is authored by the reporters who took Kilpatrick down. While The Kwame Sutra contains some salacious material, it is a fun but serious look back at the self-destructive career of a rising star who seemed headed for the White House, but instead ended up in the big house, sentenced to 28 years in federal prison for turning Detroit’s city hall into the hub of a vast criminal enterprise that contributed to Detroit’s status as the largest city in U.S. history to file for bankruptcy.
