Saving Our Children
Inspiration and Lessons from Prison

Cedric Dean

Prisoner, Activist Author
“How To Stop Your Children From Going To Prison” and “How To Save Our Children From Crime, Drugs and Violence”.


He grew up in the streets of Charlotte, N.C. where his ambition early on was to go to jail and solidify his street credibility. At age 13, in 1985, he began robbing and stealing. By 15, he was expelled from school for carrying a gun onto a school bus - months later he shot someone. Shortly after his 16th birthday he committed armed robbery and was sentenced to 14 years in prison. Five and a half years later, he was released from prison with the aspirations of being a crack dealer. Eleven months later, he was back in jail - this time he received Life without parole for his role in a Federal crack cocaine conspiracy.

Cedric Dean has been in prison for more than 20 years. He has served his prison sentence at USP Tucson, USP Atwater, USP Atlanta & USP Coleman, and is currently incarcerated at USP Lee.

Today, he is is at USP Lee and he is committed to helping the misguided see the mistake in not learning from his mistakes.
He is speaking to us from USP Lee. His Mother, Betty Baker will join us as well.
