Jemal Gibson is On the Move

My Name is… Jemal Omar Gibson.

The reason you are reading about me is… Just published my first book “Drugs My Curse My Savior”. It’s an American feel good story of triumph over tragedy, and perseverance through pain. I was born to drug addicted parents in a world engulfed in drugs, death and destruction. Many people in my family used drugs, sold drugs, went to jail for drugs and even died because of drugs. Thus my curse. But I managed to make it out of that environment with the same element that cursed me for much of my life and that’s drugs. I have sold billions of dollars of drugs and have made millions in the process. Unfortunately, as I climbed the corporate ladder in the legal world of drugs, my family kept pulling me back into a world I desperately wanted to leave behind. If you’re looking for encouragement you can find it here, if you’re looking for inspiration you can find it here, if you’re life is all good and you just enjoy reading and cheering for the underdog then you can find it here.

A Few Updates for the Black History Month Reader


Nelson Mandela’s “Conversations with Myself” with foreword written by President Barack Obama seems like a great start to updating the BHM literature selection. “…Culled from Mandela’s letters, notebooks, taped conversations, prison diaries, calendars, and an unfinished autobiography, the material includes reminiscences of the antiapartheid movement, lessons in revolutionary theory gleaned from his guerrilla training, vignettes of prison life, seething protests to authorities, tender missives to loved ones, canny political strategizing and quiet philosophical reflections.” How can you go wrong?
