✏Writing My Wrongs Book Summary : New York Times Bestseller A memoir of redemption, reform, and second chances amidst America's mass incarceration epidemic. Shaka Senghor was raised in a middle class neighborhood on Detroit’s east side during the height of the 1980s crack epidemic. An honor roll student and a natural leader, he dreamed of becoming a doctor—but at age 11, his parents' marriage began to unravel, and the beatings from his mother worsened, sending him on a downward spiral that saw him run away from home, turn to drug dealing to survive, and end up in prison for murder at the age of 19, fuming with anger and despair. Writing My Wrongs is the story of what came next. During his nineteen-year incarceration, seven of which were spent in solitary confinement, Senghor discovered literature, meditation, self-examination, and the kindness of others—tools he used to confront the demons of his past, forgive the people who hurt him, and begin atoning for the wrongs he had committed. Upon his release at age thirty-eight, Senghor became an activist and mentor to young men and women facing circumstances like his. His work in the community and the courage to share his story led him to fellowships at the MIT Media Lab and the Kellogg Foundation and invitations to speak at events like TED and the Aspen Ideas Festival. In equal turns, Writing My Wrongs is a page-turning portrait of life in the shadow of poverty, violence, and fear; an unforgettable story of redemption, reminding us that our worst deeds don’t define us; and a compelling witness to our country’s need for rethinking its approach to crime, prison, and the men and women sent there. — Oprah's Super Soul 100 Member

✏Writing My Wrongs Book Summary : This book is me. It's about the me that had to deal with the cards dealt to me. I had no choice in who I was born to or where I was placed as a baby. It was God's divine choice. I am an epic display of God's GRACE. I have suffered many hard days but not in vain. Many that will read this may have some clue but the rest have no idea. I covered my pains very well. I smiled through every wound and every oozing cut. I didn't create the mess in my life. However, I did make the mess worse. By the time I wanted to clean it up, I didn't know where to start. It wasn't my mess, but it is my house. I could no longer blame anyone for the mess I've lived in for the last 30 years of my life. I had to take responsibility and own up to my part as well as the position I played. Look, we all have been dealt a hand in life. How we play this hand determines our life's successes and defeats. I am not perfect, but from this journey I've learned. I learned how to own up to it all. I've accepted every failure and disappointment...It's time to heal and move on. I'm not perfect but I am pleasing to God. And so, I'm surviving.

Meleza saw life as a challenge of endurance. At a standstill in life, she was encouraged to share her experiences; implying it was time for her to move on and emotionally grow into who she was destined to be. Writing the Wrongs is a memoir exposing what was thought to have been the best decisions in, sometimes, the worst situations. It is a memoir of choices and results. Perception; based on both applied and assumed reality.

✏The Unwritten Word Book Summary : A book of religious inspired poetry, The Unwritten Word touches on overcoming adversity through poetry. I remember hearing a bunch of my friends saying they were spiritual, just not religious. I examined their claims and their outlook on spirituality and religion and that is where I got the title, The Unwritten Word. I believe the word is in us and it is up to us to continue to write the truths on how God has affected our lives. These poems are merely Psalms in my book of life. Something I decided to write to release the pain of life and help those who may be going through similar situations. The Unwritten Word is a collection of poems for people who were, like me, too timid to look to the heavens to find their strength. Inspired by events of my life and my many questions about my religion and the people in it, I wrote these poems to help those who may have been confused like I once was. These poems are not just poems but stories in rhyme form. My late father was the inspiration for me to write this book of poetry. I hope everyone enjoys it, just as much as he did.

✏Writing Wrongs Book Summary : Wallace Shawn usually appears in our mind's eye as the consummate eccentric actor: the shy literature teacher in Cluelessthe diabolically rational villain in The Princess Brideor as the eponymous protagonist of Vanya on 42nd Street.Few of us realize, however, that Shawn is also one of today's most provocative and political playwrights.Writing Wrongs: The Work of Wallace Shawnis a close and personal look into the life and literary work of the man whom Joseph Papp called "a dangerous writer." As the son of the late William Shawn, renowned editor of The New YorkerWallace Shawn was born into privilege and trained to thoroughly liberal values, but his plays relentlessly question the liberal faith in individualism and common decency. In an uncompromising way that is all his own, Shawn registers the shock of the new. In works such as Aunt Dan and Lemon, My Dinner with Andréand The Designated Mournerhe wrenches out of place all of the usual, comfortable mechanisms by which we operate as audiences. Perhaps our discomfort and struggle to understand a play might provoke some change in the way we see ourselves and behave in relation to others—but Shawn offers little in the way of solace. W.D. King's incisive critiques of the plays and inquiry into the life and times of their author develop a portrait of Shawn as a major figure in contemporary theater. Author note: William Davies King is Associate Professor of Dramatic Art at the University of California, Santa Barbara, and the author of Henry Irving's "Waterloo": Theatrical Engagements with Arthur Conan Doyle, George Bernard Shaw, Ellen Terry, Edward Gordon Craig, Late-Victorian Culture, Assorted Ghosts, Old Men, War, and Historywhich won the 1993 Joe A. Callaway Prize for Best Book on Theatre.

✏Writing Wrongs Book Summary : This book examines the ‘cultural apparatus’ of Human Rights in India today. It unravels discourses of victimhood, oppression, suffering and witnessing through a study of autobiographies, memoirs, reportage and media coverage, and documentaries. Moving across multiple media and genres for their representations of Dalits, riot victims, prisoners, abused and abandoned women and children, examining the formal properties of victim texts for their documentation of trauma, and analyzing the role of the sympathetic imagination, Writing Wrongs inaugurates a whole new field in literary–cultural studies by focusing on the narratives that build the culture of Human Rights. It argues for taking this cultural apparatus as essential to the political and legal dimensions of Human Rights. The book emphasizes the need for an ethical turn to literary–cultural studies and a cultural turn to Human Rights studies, arguing that a public culture of Human Rights has a key role to play in revitalizing civil society and its institutions. It will be of interest to Human Rights scholars and activists, and those in political science, sociology, literary and cultural studies, narrative theory and psychology.

✏Writing the Wrongs Book Summary : Phyllis Trible's Texts of Terror is a landmark among those studying women of the Bible. Focusing on stories of the maltreatment of women, Trible paved the way for subsequent feminist exegetes who have been very critical of such stories in the Bible, and who see Christianity as an unredeemably patriarchal religion. It is commonly said that these Old Testament stories of rape, murder, torture, and abandonment passed without comment until recent times. Here, Thompson traces and analyzes various Christian interpretations of these bible stories of women. In drawing attention to views other than Texts of Terror, Thompson speaks to Christians who are battling over how the Bible ought to be read today.
