A compelling, important addition to Hill Harper’s bestselling series, inspired by the numerous young inmates who write to him seeking guidance
After the publication of the bestselling Letters to a Young Brother, accomplished actor and speaker Hill Harper began to receive an increasing number of moving letters from inmates who yearned for a connection with a successful role model. With disturbing statistics on African-American incarceration on his mind (one in six black men were incarcerated as of 2001, and one in three can now expect to go to prison some time in their lifetimes), Harper set out to address the specific needs of inmates.
A powerful message from the heart, Letters to an Incarcerated Brother provides advice and inspiration in the face of despair along with encouraging words for restoring a sense of self-worth. As the founder of Manifest Your Destiny, a nonprofit outreach program for at-risk teens, Harper has seen firsthand the transformative effect of mentorship and the power of a positive role model. This latest addition to Hill Harper’s Letters series delivers visionary, compassionate responses to the real-life circumstances of inmates. As with the other Letters books, Harper includes moving contributions from top educators, activists, thought leaders, and entertainers. Uplifting and insightful, Letters to an Incarcerated Brother provides the hope and inspiration inmates and their families need.

I saw this book featured on "Katie" and thought of my son who is incarcerated. He had struggled with inner demons for years and although this is his first Prison term he has served several terms in county. This sounds like it may help him and am looking forward to his feedback as I am ordering it for him for Christmas. I'll update my post accordingly. thank you for some hope for and from my son and us his family
I purchased this book for my son and he highly recommended it. He said "This is a great book and is reshaping my brain."
Well, I have seen this book at walmart and other book stores. I went through some of the pages, just looking and it seam to me that he was really intact. I was having a tuff time trying to figer out do I wanna wait until it comes out on Eread? Or do I get the book? Well the Eread won. I think. See I have an kindle, and a Nook. And I read between the two of them. Some books that the nook have are cheaper on Kindle and some books that I wanna read isnt available on the Nook. Kindle only. So it differs between the two of them. But I do hope that this book will really shine some insite on the lives that are behind. Bars, LOVE LOVE. Devotion143
