Sekou Writes has had way more than his fair share of lives as a professional creative. Among other things, he has authored three books, ghostwritten a New York Times best-seller, been included in a wide variety of anthologies, written a few regular columns, authored an autobiographical stage play, directed a documentary film, and even co-written and co-starred in an Off-Broadway play.

As if all that wasn’t enough, he also donates brand new clothes to the unhoused through his HERO clothing line.
