Michael DeLeon's new book, "Why The Door Revolves" is tentatively due to be released in January 2021
"When I lost those many years of my life, and I realized looking back that there was no gain in drugs and gangs, I knew I had to make a difference in the lives of youth. I don't want my past to become their future."
Idris is someone that spent many years of his life behind bars and tells a compelling story of a life lost to the streets of Newark, New Jersey and subsequently New Jersey State Prison.
A powerful and dynamic speaker using his many years involved in gangs and drugs to empower young minority youth that the game of the streets has no winners.
"I lost so many years of my life because of drugs and subsequently years of incarceration, that I knew it was time for a change. The way the system is set up, it is unfortunately very hard for an ex-offender to make it. I took advantage of programs that are out there and reinvented myself. I now work helping Steered Straight spread this important message through the internet and technology."
