P&P Live! Ian Manuel | My Time Will Come with Andi Bernstein, 12 May | Online Event | AllEvents.in P&P Live! Ian Manuel | My Time Will Come with Andi Bernstein
Capturing the fullness of his humanity, here is Manuel’s powerful testimony of growing up homeless in Central Park Village in Tampa, Florida—a neighborhood riddled with poverty, gang violence, and drug abuse—and of his efforts to rise above his circumstances, only to find himself, partly through his own actions, imprisoned for two-thirds of his life, eighteen years of which were spent in solitary confinement. Here is the at once wrenching and inspiring story of how he endured the savagery of the United States Pr*son system, and how his victim, an extraordinary woman, forgave him and bravely advocated for his freedom, which was achieved by a crusade on the part of the Equal Justice Initiative to address the barbarism of our judicial system and bring about “just mercy.”

Full of unexpected twists and turns as it describes a struggle to attain the glory of redemption, My Time Will Come is a paean to the capacity of the human will to transcend adversity through determination and art—in Ian Manuel’s case, through his dedication to writing poetry.

Ian Manuel is an author, poet, and activist. This is his first memoir.

Manuel will be in conversation with Andi Bernstein, the founder and CEO of Beach Walk Media. Andi met Ian in early 2017, when auditing a law school class taught by Bryan Stevenson, the social justice advocate and Founder of the Equal Justice Initiative (EJI). Since their introduction, Andi has worked with Ian to support him in his transition to life after Pr*son.
