24maytueFeaturedFrom Gang Leader to Worldwide Activist: A Night with Antong Lucky6:30 pm - 8:00 pm Event Type :Book Presentation

Event Details

On Tuesday May 24th join Antong Lucky for a live Q&A with Good Morning Texas host Hannah Davis to discuss Lucky’s motivational memoir, “A Redemptive Path Forward.” Lucky’s debut book tells his personal story of a formerly incarcerated man who transformed from founder and leader of the Dallas Bloods to a practitioner of peace and nonviolence in the neighborhood he once helped to destroy.

This will be an interactive Q&A where attendees are encouraged to ask their own questions of the author. The book focuses on criminal justice reform, combating violence in impoverished communities, and making unlikely and at times controversial partnerships across political lines in order to create real change.

In addition to a stimulating conversation about Lucky’s life and work, Ruthie’s Food Truck will be on hand to serve delicious grilled cheese. Ruthie’s is a local business that employs young men and women who have gone through the juvenile justice system and who are now working towards empowered lives.

Ruthie’s will begin selling food at 6:30 p.m. and the Q&A will begin at 7:00 p.m. A book signing with Mr. Lucky will immediately follow.

This promises to be an inspirational night highlighting the ability every human has to transform and to help make the world a better place.

ANTONG LUCKY is an activist, advocate, and public speaker concentrating in the areas of mentoring Black men and boys, bridging the gap between community and police, and developing and launching violence reduction strategies, criminal justice reform, and reentry initiatives for formerly incarcerated people.
