This is a must-read. Burton is] a stunning memoir. Most public housing is automatically denied these women. So this is a big step, but just a beginning.

    But rarely has such a powerful, personal perspective been made available Becoming Ms. Burton book us. But those focused on sound bites will be missing the larger meaning of a serious work of candid reflection by a singular figure of earlyst-century America. The engaging narrative goes beyond telling Susan's story but describes how the forces in our society, her own actions, and luck played a role in her situation. If our safety was compromised, so too would his ability to think clearly and lead the nation. Her powerful and compelling memoir is an unforgettable journey and also an extraordinary light for all who are looking for answers on how we must recover, restore, and redeem those who have been incarcerated.

    Becoming Ms. ANWOL advances multi-dimensional solutions to the effects of incarceration, including 1 providing housing and Becoming Ms. Burton book to formerly incarcerated women for successful community re-entry, family reunification, and individual healing; 2 working to restore the civil rights of formerly incarcerated people; and 3 empowering, organizing, and mobilizing formerly incarcerated people as advocates for social change and personal transformation.
