** Writing my Wrongs by Shaka Senghor

Writing My Wrongs: Life, Death, and Redemption in an American Prison is the story of a man who went from solitary confinement to a career as a public speaker.  He speaks candidly about his difficult childhood, with an abusive mother (but, fortunately, a supportive and caring, if absent father) and of his career as a drug dealer. In prison, over almost two decades, he painfully learned to conquer his anger and left to start a completely new life, speaking up about prison conditions. The story shows how difficult it is to turn one’s life around, especially from the depths of the prison system.
