Dare to Struggle, Dare to Win
Yusef Bunchy Shakur

My journey of redemption, hope, triumph and transformation from Zone 8 gang life to Father, freedom fighter, community activist and grass-roots advocate.

Yusef Bunchy Shakur is well versed in the language and syntax of Detroit as an author, educator and interpreter of the language of the city’s majority Black population from its pain, anger and to its hope through his experience of transformation. He offers sage advice to help re-spirit and re-build a broken community plagued from social decay through his efforts as a local and national organizer. Yusef epitomizes redemption from the lessons he learned from his father whom he met in prison for the first time; as an organic intellectual and father committed to Restoring The Neighbor Back To The Hood. He currently serves as Co-Director of Programs with the Michigan Roundtable.
