As the co-founder of a successful mentoring program—which led to legal guardianship of a teenager, obtaining multiple degrees, leading a NYC math department to the top 5% in achievement, teaching mathematics at the University of Michigan, co-founding a fitness movement, being featured as Essence Magazine’s, Man of the Month, and, most recently, featured on CNN’s “Impact Your World,” Shawn T. Blanchard has defined what it means to be a modern day renaissance man.  How ‘Bout That For A Crack Baby: Keys to Mentorship and Success (CreateSpace) depicts his journey against the odds—from crack baby, raised in a world of drug lords, poverty, thieves, death, loneliness, and lack of guidance—to success and the life-changing mentorship of black and brown boys across the nation.
