Peace Comes to Ajani

Peace Comes to Ajani


Keith Kelly

Ajani is suffering in the wake of his soldier-father's death and he is on his way to becoming a bully. But, with the help of his caring mother and wise, understanding neighbors, he instead becomes a strong, centered and useful member of his community. Through the practice of martial arts, Ajani learns to take responsibility for his feelings and actions, and he helps to defuse tensions between his African-American and Asian-American neighbors.
