“[Voices of the Future is] so necessary a book that it truly deserves the term fantastic.”

Kevin Powell, author of Who’s Gonna Take The Weight?
“The Poetic voice of his generation.”
“Many of our youth are very concerned with what’s happening and what’s not happening now. They have vision and a lot more understanding than given credit for. This effort by Etan Thomas is a testament to that fact.”
