Stand For Something OR Stand For Nothing: A Story Of How A Mother And Daughter Fought One Of The Richest Men In The World A Mother & Daughter who fought one of the richest men in the in world...Former NBA Clippers Owner Donald Sterling!
For many years, Ebony Jones-Kuye wanted to write a book to tell the world about the courageous stand that she and her mother took against one of the richest and most prominent men in the world...former NBA Clippers owner Donald Sterling. In 2002, Former NBA owner Donald Sterling acquired the Ardmore Apartments in mid-Wilshire Los Angeles, California where Kandynce Jones was living for many years before the acquisition. Kandynce Jones, a Black woman who was legally blind, right side paralyzed due to a bad spinal fusion surgery, and suffered with Sickle Cell Anemia was living peacefully in her apartment until Donald Sterling realize she was Black. As the building management started to change due to the acquisition, overt cruelty towards African-American and Latino tenants began to be undeniable. News websites like ESPN.com, Huffingtonpost.com, and latimes.com, later shared that when Donald Sterling had first purchased the complex, he made mention of an order, stating that it was "because all the blacks in the building; they smell, they're not clean...and, it's because of all of the Mexicans that just sit around and smoke and drink all day" After this, he said, "So, we have to get them out of here."

Kandynce Jones and her daughter Ebony Jones decided to take a stand and fight Donald Sterling with no money or big time Attorneys on their side, they took a strong stand against the opposition that threatened to make them feel small and invisible. Ebony wanted to write a memoir that would be honest, upfront, and still give dignity to her mother who died ten years ago. Ebony wrote this story as an example of how you can stand up against all odds even when they are stacked up against you, this story will give you that encouraging word to strengthen and empower you, This is a true story of how a mother and daughter prove that even in the face of insurmountable circumstances; proving that it doesn't really matter who you are or where you come from...Only that you continue to stand and fight against injustice, racism, and cruelty!

"Ebony Jones-Kuye’s autobiography, Stand For Something or Stand For Nothing, is a frank and moving account of her life growing up in the 1970s and '80s in Los Angeles. This nonfiction account reads beautifully, and, at times, I marvelled at the author’s skill in telling her story in such a way that the reader is drawn into everything that happened to her and her mother. I mourned at the news of Chucky’s passing and cheered as Ebony’s intellectual accomplishments were recognized in primary and secondary school. The section of her story that is referred to in the title, namely, the housing battle with Donald Sterling, who essentially denied services to tenants on the grounds of race, reads like a legal thriller. Jones-Kuye states that she wants her story to be an inspiration for others, and, to my mind, she has succeeded brilliantly. Her story is compelling, inspiring and very readable. Stand For Something or Stand For Nothing is most highly recommended (5 Stars)." -Reviewed By Jack Magnus for Readers Favorite, https://readersfavorite.com/book-revi...
