Shaka Senghor: Why Your Worst Deeds Don’t Define You

This is a powerful and bravely honest talk from Shaka Senghor.

“I was bitter, I was angry, I was hurt. I didn’t want to take responsibility, I blamed everybody from my parents to the system.”

He speaks of his amazing road to finding compassion for himself through the tenets of Acknowledgment, Apologising and Atoning.

“What I’m asking today is that you envision a world where men and women aren’t held hostage to their past. Where misdeeds and mistakes doesn’t define you for the rest of your life.”

In 1991, Shaka Senghor shot and killed a man. He was, he says, “a drug dealer with a quick temper and a semi-automatic pistol.” Jailed for second degree murder, that could very well have been the end of the story. But it wasn’t. Instead, it was the beginning of a years-long journey to redemption, one with humbling and sobering lessons for us all.
