Wayne Law student organization hosts activist, author Shaka Senghor

DETROIT —The Muslim Law Students Association at Wayne Law hosted “Writing My Wrongs: An Evening with Author/Activist Shaka Senghor,” Wednesday, March 7 at Wayne State University.

Senghor is a leading voice in criminal justice reform and the president and co-founder of #BeyondPrisons, an initiative designed to uplift the voices and experiences of those impacted by the criminal justice system.

The event was moderated by Assistant Professor Blanche Cook. Also speaking were third-year students Husnah Khan, president of the Muslim Law Students Association; and Madeline Sinkovich, president of the Keith Students for Civil Rights.

Senghor discussed his life experiences and how his time in prison taught him to release his anger and make positive choices. After the event, he held a book signing of his memoir, “Writing My Wrongs: Life, Death and Redemption in an American Prison,” which debuted on best seller list for both The New York Times and The Washington Post.
