TED: Shaka Senghor: Why your worst deeds don’t define you - Shaka Senghor (2014)

June 23rd, 2014

Episode 29 of 907 episodes

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.
