ABOUT JAMILA T. DAVIS
Jamila T. Davis, born and raised in Jamaica Queens, New York, is a motivational speaker, prison reform activist, film producer and the author of several books geared to empower the young and the old. She is also a co-founder of WomenOverIncarcerated.org, an advocacy group created to shed light on the lengthy sentences of non-violent, female federal offenders and to rally for sentencing reform.
As a former real estate investor and Hip Hop Music & Professional Sports Celebrity Advisor, Davis is no stranger to triumphs and defeats. From a self-made, multi-millionaire at age 25, her life took a tragic twist. Today she is known as federal prisoner #59253-053, sentenced to 12 1/2 years for bank fraud.
From behind bars, Davis embarked on an intense journey of inner healing and restoration. Documenting her findings, she developed the “Voices of Consequences Enrichment Series,” a three book, self-help curriculum designed to empower incarcerated women to heal, recognize their potential and recapture their dreams. This series has helped to transform the lives of female offenders across the world.
