Writing My Wrongs (2013) tells the story of a man growing up during Detroit’s 1980s crack epidemic. These blinks take you on a journey from his happy childhood to a life of drugs, gangs, murder and a 19-year prison sentence – and how he came to find hope and redemption through writing.
Shaka Senghor is a mentor, writer and TED speaker who spent 19 years in prison for murder. He currently works as the Director of Strategy and Innovation with #cut50, an initiative to reduce the US prison population by half by the year 2025.
