Piri Thomas Obit

Piri Thomas, the author of Down These Mean Streets, passed away in his El Cerrito, California home on Monday at the age of 83. Thomas, who grew up in Spanish Harlem during the 1930s and 40s, exposed the tough conditions of New York's ghetto to an unaware America and inspired generations of authors with his memoir, novels, and poetry. Written in 1967, Down These Mean Streets has become a staple in college and high school classrooms across the country.
