Title:   Diary of A Freedom Writer “The Experience”
Published by: Tate Publishing
Author: Darrius Garrett
Format: Paperback/eBook
Release Date: April 29, 2013


Survivor… a word continuously thought of when reading
this memoir. Upon the release of The Freedom Writers Diary
and film adaptation starring Hilary Swank in 2007, New York
Times bestselling author Darrius Garrett realized that both
book and movie tell the Freedom Writer Story as a whole, but
not on a personal level. During speaking engagements, the same
questions always surface: “Did Ms. Gruwell change you? How
did you make it out of the gang life? What stopped you from
killing yourself?” Darrius’ answers are inside.
Diary of a Freedom Writer takes you on a journey beyond
the classrooms to the treacherous streets of Long Beach,
California. An innocent little boy born in poverty and raised in
a violent environment, Darrius became a product of the streets,
written off by the school and judicial systems alike, growing up
in an environment full of gangs and drugs. He spent his life
searching for a father figure until he became a Freedom Writer,
motivational speaker, bestselling author, and finally a father
himself. His story is that of a man realizing his experiences
are what made him the man he has been seeking to be all his
life. Upon beating the odds, Diary of a Freedom Writer serves as
proof that Darrius’s story of struggle, life, change, and hope will
uplift, educate, encourage, and inspire.
