Author, movie producer and author Duece King will be speaking in Buffalo this week. Back to Basics Outreach Ministries and Buffalo Peacemakers will be hosting the free event this Thursday, February 3, 2022. Deuce will be speaking about his journey from prison to the silver screen,

In 2003, Duece King was incarcerated and sentenced to 10 years for drugs and weapon possession which was an life altering event. During this dark period, Duece developed a passion for writing and began to create a narrative of characters using his past experiences.

The event is open to all and is completely free. It will be held at the Frank E. Merriweather Library, located at 1324 E. Jefferson Venue, in the Dr. Eva M. Doyle Auditorium. Doors open at 5:30 pm and the event will start at 6 pm.

Years later, after paying his debt to society, Duece King is still a hustler but on a different mission. King now dedicates his time, sharing the hope that he now possesses. He uses his book and movie series PURE as a tool to reach back into the communities across America, conveying a message and explaining how we can succeed no matter the obstacles and tragedies in our past.

Duece is the man behind the films Conflicted, Pure, and Hunger Pangs. Duece is also an author and will be hosting a book signing in Buffalo on Saturday, February 5 at Doris Records.
