From the outside looking in, Deshaun Nelson is a 32 year-old black man plagued with drug addiction, bad attitude, lack of accountability, and extreme anger issues. His short fuse and narcissistic ways are red flags for anyone he encounters. But beyond the surface lies a much deeper problem. A problem that black men in America have hid from for decades.... MENTAL ILLNESS. After being humbled to his lowest point, Deshaun finds himself in a situation that could land him years behind bars. His only chance of leniency comes in the form of a black, court-appointed therapist, Dr. Julissa Bishop. As Dr. Bishop unravels layers of his murky past, Deshaun is forced to trace the origins of his trauma head on. Deshaun’s Road To Redemption is a powerful testament to the mental struggles of black, inner-city men throughout America. This story shines light on the unhealthy ways black men have been taught to internalize their emotions, resulting in lost souls looking for temporary solutions in all the wrong places.
