Reverend Anthony Kelley’s Shadows is a compelling autobiographical narrative that is rich with stories . Kelley takes us on a tour of the tragic and the possible, on freedom and responsibility and points to our need to cultivate the virtues and practices of character, competence, commitment and pride for a new generation of young people, especially the incarcerated and forgotten in the richest and most powerful nation in the world.
