Washington, DC  -- Overcoming adversity. Finding purpose. The relentless pursuit of destiny. In his new autobiography entitled "Indisputable: The Story of a Favored Son," Okechuku Kelechi Enyia takes readers through the discover and evolution of his life’s work, his experiences as a medical student, graduate student and professional of color; and his time in Nigeria with a parallel to the movie Black Panther. 

He also addresses health equity and the social determinants of health, mental health and well-being, the opioid epidemic; key developmental relationships and the importance of mentorship for Black men and boys; staff diversity and employment on Capitol Hill; and his transition into entrepreneurship and higher education.

Enyia comments, "I invite you to journey with me. Along the way, I provide policy recommendations, peer-reviewed research, nuanced tips on how to land a job in the workforce and how to succeed on Capitol Hill as a staffer and an advocate; in addition to how to navigate through challenging career transitions to maximize the life’s work that you have been called to achieve."
