Chablis Dandridge, born to a 17-year old single mother and raised in Newark, NJ, had many lessons early on about the harsh realities of life. By 18, he had dropped out of school, suffered 4 gunshot wounds, was paralyzed from the waist down, fathered two children, was institutionalized for mental health concerns and found himself living in and out of jail. While in prison, Chablis received a college degree and Paralegal Certification, learned Spanish, focused on prison reform advocacy and community outreach work, and authored 5 books. Today he lives in Charlotte, NC, speaks publicly on human rights and works tirelessly on recidivism and youth reformation programs.
