Description

In life, it's not how you start that matters. It's how you finish. In the 1980s Shaka Senghor was an honor roll student and dreamed of becoming a doctor. In 1991 he was sent to prison for second-degree murder. During his 19-year incarceration, seven of which were spent in solitary confinement, Senghor discovered literature, meditation, and self-examination. He used these tools to confront the demons of his past, forgive the people who hurt him, and begin atoning for the wrongs he had committed. At his release at age 38 he became an activist and mentor to young men and women facing circumstances like his.
