Prince Shakur (UTV 2021, Writing of Witness) Launches Debut Memoir

In his debut memoir ‘When They Tell You To Be Good’, Prince Shakur (UTV 2021, Writing of Witness with Elizabeth Rosner) mines his radicalization and self-realization through examination of place, childhood, queer identity, and a history of uprisings. Shakur is a queer Jamaican-American journalist and cultural essayist whose words have been featured in Teen Vogue, Catapult, Level, Electric Lit, and more.

In a recent interview with LitHub in the spirit of NaMoWriMo, Shakur takes us on a journey of how and why reflection matters, and offers examples and tips, too. Listen now.
