Description

In this talk, Manuel will discuss his memoir, My Time Will Come, which details his rocky journey on the road to redemption, after being sentenced to life in prison without parole at the age of 14, and surviving 18 years in solitary confinement. Manuel will contemplate how writing poetry kept him sane and gave him hope, while incarcerated; how his relationship with his victim, who is now one of his closest friends and fiercest advocates, contributed to his release from prison in 2016; and how his experience sparked his career as a motivational speaker at schools and social organizations nationwide.
