Inhaltsangabe zu „Lessons of Redemption: A story of guns, drugs and murder“ von Kevin Shird

In Praise of Lessons of Redemption "The man who lived The Wire, and then turned it all around” TheJournal.ie Kevin Shird's remarkable journey from the corner of Mount and Fayette streets in West Baltimore -- from a life nearly squandered in service of the other America's brutal underground economy -- isn't yet complete. He's still learning, still fighting, still paying back. But with "Lessons of Redemption" on the page, it's clear that for him, there is no going back.' David Simon, creator of The Wire and The Corner 'The book is an account of life on the streets, the impact of drugs on the community and the impact of addiction on the children of addicts. Being a Baltimore native and knowing the author for over 25 years, his story is the story of far too many.' Mario Barrett, Grammy Nominated R&B singer and actor 'This man's story is a remarkable one every American ought to read to learn how redemption can work to change a person to become a major contributor to solving the social problems of a city, the poor and underprivileged. It shows how one who may have fallen from grace and been punished for crime and incarcerated can change his value system and become a leader in his community to solve one of its greatest problems of crime and violence.' Judge Arthur L. Burnett, Sr., Superior Court of D.C., Retired. Lessons of Redemption is the acclaimed autobiography of Kevin Shird, a former drug dealer from Baltimore City in the United States who now is a leading advocate against violence, drug dealing and social inequality. Lessons of Redemption is no ordinary book. It is an extraordinarily account of how one young man turned his life around after years of involvement in serious crime and drug dealing. Shird’s book tells of shootings, murder, drug dealing and his life behind bars in a federal prison. Shocking, fascinating and frightening, Shird’s book is a raw, uncensored glimpse into a way of life that has destroyed many urban communities in America.
