"What Winners Won't Tell You"

Jenkins shares his take on winning and losing.  What a book! We were able to score a seat and an audience question at his book tour launch, that started in Philadelphia in October 2023. Malcolm's family and friends were there to support. Michael Eric Dyson moderated the launch with humor and expertise. To hear from Malcolm on his heart story, social justice, the players coalition and more was truly special and very engaging. He met with the audience after the event to sign copies and thank each and every guest. He was sharp as an NFL tackle in his custom Damari Savile suede front zip jacket, flat front pant and hi sheen leather shoes that will forever walk that walk of justice, equality, peace, and Philadelphia brotherly love. You will want to read this book from start to finish without breaking for lunch, It's fantastic, real, raw and just what we need to start to learn to move forward in unity. We wish Malcolm great success on tour and always. We celebrate his continued work in the Philadelphia and global social justice community.
