THE MAKING OF A MAD MAN

Mateen Ajala Diop's life was a rollercoaster of one misfortune after another. He had to endure an abusive stepfather who repeatedly raped his older sister from a very young age. Mateen's mother took him and his sister away to escape his stepfather. This move saw Mateen end up in Alamo Heights, San Antonio, where he constantly endured racist taunting and abuse. With increasing exposure to racism and racial discrimination, Mateen coasted through life without any guidance or prospects until he had a moment of clarity in the military. What was this moment about, and how did it alter Mateen's life? This autobiography is the story of one man's battle against all odds for the educational emancipation of himself and his people.
The Making of a MAD Man is a sober and thought-provoking book. Mateen Diop told his story from childhood to adulthood, and seeing the change in his circumstances and commitments was inspiring. His experiences growing up in a segregated neighborhood and attending a school where he was racially abused painted a realistic picture of how racism could still thrive in modern culture.

DIOP

Dr. Diop believes that it's not our circumstances that determine the desired outcomes, but instead, it's our reaction to those situations. Dr. Diop was reared in a segregated, low-income neighborhood in San Antonio, TX. In his environment, excelling in school was not a celebrated trait. Instead, it was how much you drank or smoked that determined your worth. Fortunately, Dr. Diop never listened to the naysayers.

Mateen A. Diop, Ed.D
