Lessons of Redemption

A Story of Drugs, Guns, Violence and Prison

Lessons of Redemption is the acclaimed autobiography of Kevin Shird, a former drug dealer from Baltimore City in the United States who now is a leading advocate against violence, drug dealing and social inequality.

Lessons of Redemption is no ordinary book. It is an extraordinarily account of how one young man turned his life around after years of involvement in serious crime and drug dealing. Shird’s book tells of shootings, murder, drug dealing and his life behind bars in a federal prison. Shocking, fascinating and frightening, Shird’s book is a raw, uncensored glimpse into a way of life that has destroyed many urban communities in America.
