Meet the Author

Demico Boothe is considered by many to be an expert on many issues dealing with African-Americans, particularly the U.S. criminal justice system as it relates to black men. Since the release of his first title in 2007, Demico has been crisscrossing the country networking and speaking and raising national awareness about the crisis of African-American male criminality and imprisonment and has found that he is uniquely equipped to address certain dynamics within the mindsets of many African-American male youth as well as the American criminal justice system that are responsible for the creation and continuance of this crisis. He currently resides in his hometown of Memphis, TN where he works with the local community on a daily basis to address issues involving young black men. Demico Boothe is also an excellent speaker who has spoken by request at a wide variety of venues including churches, colleges, prisons, jails & halfway houses, and many private venues.
