In her senior year of college, Asha Bandele and a group of other writers went to a prison to read their works for a Black History Month program. There, she met Rashid, a man who was serving 20 to life for murder, a man who spoke softly and wisely, a man who would become Asha's soul mate. This is her account of a relationship that has thrived despite terrific odds.
