Expired [ZOOM MEETING] Virtual Huddle w/ Antong Lucky
August 11, 2020
6:00 pm - 7:00 pm
Antong Lucky, the founder and former leader of the Dallas 415 Bloods Gang, is the Urban Specialists Master Educator and National Engagement Director for OGU (Original Gangstas University). At an early age, Lucky was embroiled in a life of crime, gang violence and drug dealing that ultimately landed him in prison. In prison Antong denounced his gang affiliation, started to read a lot of books to educate himself and begin working to unite the rival gangs.
Antong quickly rose to become one of the most respected and sought after mentors in prison. His teachings of conflict resolution taught fellow inmates how not to use violence as their primary language but instead practice peace.
Antong has spent the last twenty years working to end violence in communities by training OGs (original Gangstas) across the country to effectively mentor youth away from a life of gangs, crime and violence.
Most recently Antong trains police officers on effective community engagement strategies. Antong is a sought out speaker on issues of eradicating violence, Re-entry, criminal justice reform and bridging the gap between law enforcement and community.
