Shaka Senghor

Keynote Speaker: Author, Criminal Justice Reform Activist & Senior Fellow with the Dream Corps

Shaka Senghor Biography

Shaka Senghor is a leading voice in criminal justice reform and a Senior Fellow with the Dream Corps. His memoir, "Writing My Wrongs: Life, Death and Redemption in an American Prison," was released in March 2016 and debuted on The New York Times Best Seller List as well as The Washington Post Best Seller List. An unforgettable tale of forgiveness and second chances, "Writing My Wrongs" reminds us that our worst deeds don't define who we are or what we can contribute to the world. His story has inspired thousands and serves as a powerful testament to the power of hope, compassion and unconditional love.

Oprah Winfrey has referred to her interview with Shaka for SuperSoul Sunday as “one of the best I’ve ever had—not just in my career, but in my life… His story touched my soul.” His TED Talk, which he delivered at TED’s 30th Anniversary Conference, received a standing ovation and has been viewed more than 1.3 million times; TED later featured his talk in its “Year in Ideas” roundup, a collection of the most powerful TED Talks of 2014.

Shaka has been a guest on CNN, "CBS This Morning," "The Daily Show with Trevor Noah," "Good Day New York," "NewsOne Now with Roland Martin," and C-SPAN’s "After Words." He has also been a guest on numerous radio programs, including "All Things Considered," "The Lenny Lopate Show," "The Maggie Linton Show," and "Power 105.1 with Angie Martinez."

Senghor is the recipient of numerous awards, including the 2016 EBONY Power100, 2016 Ford Man of Courage, 2016 NAACP Great Expectations Award, the 2015 Manchester University Innovator of the Year, and the 2012 Black Male Engagement (BMe) Leadership Award. He was recently recognized by OWN as a “Soul Igniter” in the inaugural class of the SuperSoul 100, a dynamic group of trailblazers whose vision and life’s work are bringing a higher level of consciousness to the world around them and encouraging others to do the same. He was also a 2014 TED Prize finalist for The Atonement Project, is a former MIT Media Lab Director’s Fellow, and a current Fellow in the inaugural class of the W.K. Kellogg Foundation’s Community Leadership Network. He has taught at the University of Michigan and shares his story of redemption around the world.
