As an author, motivational speaker and mentor, Shaka Senghor’s story of redemption has inspired thousands. In his memoir, Writing My Wrongs: Life, Death, and Redemption in an American Prison, Senghor recounts how, after running away from home at age 14, he turned to dealing drugs and eventually pled guilty to a second-degree murder charge at age 19. But that’s just the beginning of his tale. The book recounts how he turned away from his violent lifestyle and embraced meditation, literature and creativity. Senghor now serves as a lecturer at U-M, in addition to lecturing across the country at churches, schools and prisons. Literati will donate all proceeds from the sale of Writing My Wrongs to the Children’s Literacy Network.
