Martin Lockett – Prison to Purpose Pipeline

Martin Lockett – Prison to Purpose Pipeline

Many of you are familiar with Martin Lockett, who has written many blog posts for us over the years. Today, Martin Luther King, Jr. Day 2022, is the perfect day to let you know that since his release in June of 2021, Martin has republished his book – formerly Palpable Irony (see Rick’s review here), with a new title: Prison to Purpose Pipeline: How one sentence led to a life of service.

You can order the new book here.

On this day, we encourage you to be engaged in efforts to protect voting rights. Write and call your elected officials. March, rally, organize, mobilize. Take actions that help bend the arc and bring forth the kind of world MLK Jr. dreamed about — but did not live to see.

“Make a career of humanity. Commit yourself to the noble struggle for equal rights. You will make a better person of yourself, a greater nation of your country, and a finer world to live in.” Martin Luther King, Jr.

This is also a good time to watch Martin’s MLK, Jr. speech, recorded while he was still incarcerated.
