ASU GSV Summit: How One Man Changed His Arc From Prison to a Life of Great Impact

Martin Luther King Jr. once said, “Let us realize the arc of the moral universe is long, but it bends towards justice.” For me, that famous quote speaks to a spiritual truth; that each of us have the power and responsibility to define the meaning of our life’s work. Having spent 20 years in prison, my talk is about finding your own freedom. Freedom in the midst of any circumstance or situation. Freedom no matter what your life looks like right now. Freedom regardless of how limited and powerless you may currently perceive yourself to be.

Khalil embodies the triumph of a mind and spirit freed! His life is an inspiration for all young men, especially young black men growing in societies wounded by racism such as the USA and South Africa. Khalil is a role model for those growing up without fathers and caring male mentors.
