Product Details


“If you want to peer into a heart, if you want a story of brokenness and healing and fury and redemption and humanity, if you want to envision a different, better way forward, Senghor’s letters are a beautiful place to begin.”—Chicago Tribune

“Letters to the Sons of Society is a visceral and visual journey for the ages. These beautifully written letters are intimate, transparent, and vulnerable. Shaka Senghor’s writing provides the perfect roadmap for us to remove the barriers and obstacles against our true feelings.”—Kenya Barris, creator of black-ish

“Shaka Senghor takes us on an awe-inspiring and liberatory journey that transcends words. His latest literary work, cast in letters to his sons, leads us through a depth of unmatched vulnerability and allows us the gift of seeing who we have the opportunity to become.”—Angela Rye, CEO of Impact Strategies and political analyst

“If we are going to heal our nation, we need to listen to voices like Shaka Senghor, who tells his truth about his amazing journey from incarceration to liberation, which means a lot more than just physical bars. Letters to the Sons of Society hits hard.”—Reginald Hudlin, producer and director

“Parenting and prison are never discussed together, but in his breakthrough new book, Shaka Senghor combines the two to produce a new understanding of both. In raising one son while in prison and a second as a free man, Senghor must confront his own life in order to explain it to his sons. In doing so, he delivers a masterpiece that will change the way you think and feel about almost everything.”—Ben Horowitz, cofounder of Andreessen Horowitz

“As Black men, we just don’t talk about certain things—especially the pain that we carry when we feel we are falling short as fathers. Senghor courageously sheds light on topics that have almost never been discussed in public. The integrity and transparency found in Letters to the Sons of Society make it a book that everyone needs to read.”—Van Jones, author of Beyond the Messy Truth
