9780979295317: Getting Out & Staying Out: A Black Man's Guide to Success After Prison

The United States of America has more people behind bars than any other country in the world and every year nearly 700,000 prisoners get released back into society, the largest percentage of them being black males. "Getting Out & Staying Out" is a short, easy to read set of guidelines intended to help incarcerated and newly freed African-American men (a) learn how to most productively do their time while in prison (b) know what to expect once they are released (c) understand that entrepreneurship and self-employment is what their long-term focus should be on instead of a job, and (d) understand the importance of stable relationships and how they aid in successful re-entry. If followed, the advice and suggestions given in this very simple guide should prove very helpful for black men who are serious about getting out of prison and not ever going back.

About the Author:

Since publishing the bestselling expose' "Why Are So Many Black Men in Prison?" author Demico Boothe has been crisscrossing the country networking and speaking and raising national awareness about the crisis of African-American male criminality and imprisonment. Having served over twelve years in federal prison himself, Demico has found that he is uniquely equipped to address certain dynamics within the mindset of many African-American male youth as well as the American criminal justice system that are responsible for the creation and continuance of this crisis. He currently resides in his hometown of Memphis, TN where he works with the community on a daily basis to address local issues involving young black men.
