An Ongoing Conversation About Identity

Mitchell Jackson is an American author. His critically acclaimed book, Survival Math earned its title as Mitchell recalled calculating what it would take to survive the poverty stricken neighborhood of North Portland and the friends and family members who had become thugs, murderers, and drug dealers.

Mitchell’s ascent from drug runner to prison inmate to a literary phenom is a reflection of his deep study and thinking on topics ranging from black history to Kobe’s lasting legacy on young black men in America.

We invite Mitchell to @BeyondWell to regularly discuss race, rage, and how to stay sane in some of the craziest times in American history.
