Accomplished actor Hill Harper is not only known for his roles in television and film (he is the former star of "CSI:NY" and is now on the spy drama "Covert Affairs"), but also for his dedication to helping underserved youths everywhere better their lives. As the founder of Manifest Your Destiny, a nonprofit outreach program for at-risk teens, Harper has seen firsthand the transformative effect of mentorship. Now, he turns his attention to a new population in need. Following publication of his bestselling "Letters to a Young Brother" series, Harper received many moving letters from inmates who yearned for a connection with a successful role model. With disturbing statistics on African-American incarceration on his mind (one in six black men were incarcerated as of 2001, and one in three can now expect to go to prison some time in their lifetimes), he set out to address their specific needs. His new book, Letters to an Incarcerated Brother, offers a visionary response to the real-life circumstances of inmates and their loved ones.
