Redemption Song

A true-life story on the will to survive bullies and discrimination and come out victorious.

Born into a very large Mississippi family, I immediately knew that I was not like everyone else. My differences were more than being a little black boy born to parents in a segregated south. Bullying was constant growing up and that carried on into adulthood. Redemption Song is about triumph; the will to overcome and be great.
