‘I spent my time reading and writing, using books to free my mind and expand my thinking’

We’re honored to have a pioneering voice in American criminal justice reform, Shaka Senghor, on the Mindvalley Podcast. Tune in to hear the awe-inspiring journey of a man who used a 40-year prison sentence to expose the untold stories of life behind bars in his NYT bestselling book Writing My Wrongs: Life, Death, and Redemption in an American Prison.
