Exclusive speaker Shaka Senghor featured in Oprah Magazine

Founder of the Atonement Project, Director of Strategy for #Cut50, and author Shaka Senghor was recently interviewed by Oprah Winfrey, and featured in the September Edition of Oprah Magazine.

Shaka’s memoir, “Writing My Wrongs (2013),” shares the story of his experience as a former inmate, while serving 19 years in prison. Oprah mentions in the article, that after reading Shaka’s story, her understanding grew of what it is like to fall short, or lose your way. Moved by reading his experiences, Oprah invited Shaka to tape an episode of “Super Soul Sunday,” which will air this fall.

Oprah states,“His story touched my soul. We talked for two and a half hours, for a show that will have to be edited down to 42 minutes. He surprised himself with ahas and tears. Everyone within earshot was deeply moved.”
