Summary
This work is an addition to the author's Letters series, inspired by the numerous young inmates who write to him seeking guidance. After the publication of Letters to a Young Brother, the author, an accomplished actor and speaker, began to receive an increasing number of moving letters from inmates who yearned for a connection with a successful role model. With disturbing statistics on African-American incarceration on his mind (one in six black men were incarcerated as of 2001, and one in three can now expect to go to prison some time in their lifetimes), he set out to address the specific needs of inmates. A powerful message from the heart, this book provides advice and inspiration in the face of despair along with encouraging words for restoring a sense of self-worth. As the founder of Manifest Your Destiny, a nonprofit outreach program for at-risk teens, the author has seen firsthand the transformative effect of mentorship and the power of a positive role model. This latest addition to his Letters series delivers visionary, compassionate responses to the real-life circumstances of inmates. As with the other Letters books, he includes contributions from top educators, activists, thought leaders, and entertainers, and provides the hope and inspiration inmates and their families need. -- Provided by publisher
