Review of Condemned in SF Bay View.

‘Condemned’ by Keith LaMar (Bomani Shakur)

February 27, 2014
Review by Denis O’Hearn
When I was asked to write a review of Keith LaMar’s “Condemned,” I wondered if I was the best person to do it. First of all, I wrote the foreword to the book. Plus, as you’ll see when you read this book – and I hope you do – we are the closest of friends, really brothers. That must mean I am a bit biased, right?
'Condemned' by Keith LaMar coverWell, I will admit my bias from the beginning. I regularly visit Keith LaMar, or Bomani Shakur, as I know him. We correspond and talk on the phone. He and his comrade Jason Robb have been regular visiting professors (by phone) to my classes at Binghamton University.
Rather than disqualifying me from reviewing this book, however, all of these things should make you listen a bit closer to what I have to say. Especially if you come from California, where the injustices that Keith LaMar outlines in this book, and the severe consequences of such injustices, are all too familiar.
