Suzetta Perkins had the heart of a writer at a very young age. As a dreamer, writing was one of the avenues that allowed her to dream big and take her imagination beyond the boundaries of the four walls of her bedroom. She wrote many short stories, and in high school, she became the co-editor of her school's yearbook. Today, Suzetta has traveled many miles since her early days. She has been to more than twenty countries and has lived and/or visited just as many states in the U.S. She plans to write stories whose backdrops come from the experiences she's been fortunate enough to visit. To have traveled and experienced the world as she has is a story in itself. The mother of two grown children and one granddaughter, Suzetta finally realized her dream of writing a full-length novel. In 2000, she penned her first novel, Behind the Veil, a mainstream suspense novel that looks into the life a man whose greed and deceit nearly costs him his family, livelihood, and his life. Suzetta Perkins is also the author of A Love So Deep, Ex-Terminator: Life after Marriage, Déjà vu, Nobody Stays the Same, and At the End of the Day. She is also the cofounder and president of the Sistahs Book Club.

This was supposed to be a test run because I was down loading music for the show. When I finally looked up at the studio, I saw a caller waiting for the show to begin so I rushed in and grabbed that caller on the line as fast as could be expected in a count down. lol
It was a young man from HoutonTexas named Steven.
He has been saved since he was five years old, he knew how to pray. I could sense that he had an understanding of the word of God. He was unsettled in his spirit and was seeking a specific word from the Lord. We talked and prayed about 34 minutes. Hear it for your self...
Based out of Berkeley, California - Tamara Perkins shares the stories of two men, Noel and Harrison, who were incarcerated with a life sentence as juveniles. After being imprisoned for decades these two men get a chance of Life After Life and are released.
In this interview we have the opportunity to bear witness to the struggle, hope, and truth that isn't a part of the traditional public safety rhetoric. In my conversation with Ms Perkins we learn who really lives behind bars and how the incarceration system plays a role in systemic and institutional racism.
Through this nearly 20-minute edited discussion Tamara describes the humanity of men and women who have been labeled as less than human by the treatment and public disregard they endure.
When a person becomes incarcerated in our society too often we forget they exist. As Tamara stated, "it's just that one act" that defines the incarcerated. Too often, those who are behind bars are labeled for their crime rather than their humanity.
In her film Life after Life Tamara takes us through the experiences of two men who have been given life sentences and later released. Listen to Dr Crain's interview with Tamara Perkins to learn about their journey to justice and healing.
