A product of Chicago's Southside, he grew up seeing the devastating effects that drugs and crime had on his community.

He believes in teaching others the truth about issues of injustice and empowering them with the tools to become agents of hope and change.

The Harvesting of Our Youth

Authored by Vincent D Lewis

This book is intended to shine a bright light on the suffering of young black males involved in the criminal justice system. Because this problem has many different roots, it is impossible to simply write about crime and incarceration rates, so I discuss various issues contributing to the weakening of the black community as a whole, which results in higher incarceration rates among black males.
