Letters to the Unchained
Darrell L. Myricks II
Darrell L. Myricks II is a son, a brother and an activist for African-American youth, particularly for those who find themselves at a crossroads in choosing a life path. In 2012, Myricks was sentenced to life in prison after refusing to take a plea deal of 10 years for a crime he did not commit in Douglas County , Ga.
In his first book, Myricks explores the system of mass incarceration by peeling back the layers of his own adolescent years growing up between Gary, IN and Michigan City, IN as an example of the factors that influence decision making. He graduated from high school in 2006 and went on to attend ITT Technical College and Ivy Tech Community College.
Currently there is a petition on www.change.org to Georgia Governor Brian Kemp to free Myricks. He also encourages readers, activists and community leaders to continue to speak out on injustices throughout our community.
