Yusef Shakur & Push Nevahda @ Urban Guerilla Cafe
In the 2nd edition of The Window 2 My Soul, Yusef Shakur invites readers to explore his remarkable journey of tragedy, triumph, and transformation. Yusef accounts the experiences of growing up in a single parent household that was plagued with alcohol and physical abuse. By the tender age of thirteen, Yusef would co-found one of Detroit’s most notorious street gangs Zone 8. Yusef highlights his rambunctious youth with gripping moments, such as being expelled from all Detroit Public Schools while being charged with numerous violent assaults and attempted murder. In prison before the age of 20, Shakur would meet behind bars the father he never knew.
