Forum: Reginald Dwayne Betts

Reginald Dwayne Betts mesmerized a Millbrook Friday Forum audience with poetry and spoken word vignettes about his journey from a prison cell to earning a Yale Law School degree. Though a youth at the time of his conviction, Mr. Betts was incarcerated in an adult prison where he served 8 ½ years and discovered poetry and the power of his own written words.
Mr. Betts is a working poet, a busy public defender, and an advocate for criminal justice reform. The personal fortitude and grit he relied upon to establish himself in so many challenging realms is a testament to his character and determination. Mr. Betts is also the winner of countless high-profile fellowships, awards, and prizes.
