Don't Let Your Past Hold You Back : The Redemption of a Gangsta
by M. Lamontt Bowens




Overview -

This is not the typical feel good story one may be used to reading in these types of motivational memoirs. It's not about some exceptional black kid from the ghetto who resisted the negative trappings of his environment and goes on to do good and makes his whole community proud. On the contrary, this is an example of someone who gave into the temptations of the streets, made some terrible choices along the way, and paid an enormous price for it. The silver lining to his story is Lamontt made the decision to turn his life around and to do so regardless of his past. Lamontt overcame a broken family, poverty, gang violence, drugs, and prison, in order to begin his journey to become a good father, a good citizen, and ultimately an attorney. When it's all said and done, Lamontt's story is about forgiveness, determination, and perseverance. He is the quintessential example of someone who refused to allow his past to hold him back.
