Kenneth N. Green was kicked out of Roosevelt High School. A half-year later, he was allowed to return and finally graduated after four and one half years. He made a comeback after graduating from Roosevelt. His book tells how he rebounded from poverty and academic problems growing up in Humboldt Park to his success as a defense attorney, Chief of Public Defenders in Los Angeles County, a boxer inducted into the California Hall of Fame, Adjunct Professor at UCLA, and single parent of a son. I'm From Division Street also vividly describes the Humboldt Park neighborhood where the author grew up and profiles famous and successful Jewish people who had their roots in that neighborhood.
