AFTER LIFE: MY JOURNEY FROM INCARCERATION TO FREEDOM
Monday, January 20 Underwritten by: Larry & Mary Gerbens In 1996 Alice Johnson was sentenced to a mandatory life sentence plus 25-years without parole for her role in a nonviolent federal drug case. This was her first and only conviction ever. After she served twenty-one years, her life sentence was commuted in 2018 by President Donald Trump, with the help of Kim Kardashian West. An ordained minister, mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother, Johnson shares her dramatic story of hope, mercy and gratitude while making the public aware of the realities of life behind bars and the importance of the ongoing struggle to end mass incarceration. Her story is a vital reminder of the power of redemption and of the importance of making second chances count.Learn more»
A LITTLE GIRL, AN EARTHQUAKE, AND THE MAKING OF A FAMILY
Tuesday, January 21 Underwritten by: Samaritas and Barnes & Thornburg, LLP  Author, columnist, radio host, and philanthropist Mitch Albom is an inspiration around the world. His books, including the New York Times Bestselling Tuesdays with Morrie, have sold over 39 million copies and have been translated into over 45 languages. While nationally recognized for his sports writing at the Detroit Press, Albom is perhaps best known for the themes of hope and kindness that weave through his books, plays, and films. In his talks and presentations, he brings the same inspiring message of community building, giving, and purpose. He is the founder of 10 charities, nine in Detroit and one in Haiti. His latest book, Finding Chika, marks his return to nonfiction for the first time in more than a decade as a memoir that celebrates Chika, a young Haitian orphan whose short life would forever change his heart. It is a book about the making of a family and our responsibility to abandoned children worldwide.Learn more»

PROGRESS: 10 REASONS TO LOOK FORWARD TO THE FUTURE
Friday, January 24 Underwritten by: GMB Architects + Engineering and Calvin Center for Innovation in Business  Johan Norberg is an author, lecturer, documentary filmmaker, and a native of Sweden. He lectures about entrepreneurship, global trends and globalization around the world. He is a frequent commentator in Swedish and international media, and has a regular column in Sweden’s biggest daily, Metro. The 15 books he has written and the three books he has edited cover a broad range of topics, including global economics, intellectual history, and the science of happiness. Norberg is a Senior Fellow at the Cato Institute in Washington D.C., and a Senior Fellow at the European Centre for International Political Economy in Brussels. According to the daily news our world seems to be collapsing: divisive politics across the Western world, racism, poverty, war, inequality, hunger. While politicians, journalists and activists from all sides talk about the damage done, Johan Norberg, in his book Progress, offers an illuminating and heartening analysis of just how far we have come in tackling the greatest problems facing humanity. In the face of fear-mongering, darkness and division, the facts are unequivocal: the golden age is now.Learn more» [post_title] => The January Series - FREE 15 day lecture series [post_excerpt] => [post_status] => publish [comment_status] => closed [ping_status] => closed [post_password] => [post_name] => the-january-series-free-15-day-lecture-series-3-2020-01-21 [to_ping] => [pinged] => [post_modified] => 2019-12-19 13:20:18 [post_modified_gmt] => 2019-12-19 18:20:18 [post_content_filtered] => [post_parent] => 24385 [guid] => https://www.whitelake.org/?post_type=tribe_events&eventDate=2020-01-21#038;p=24385 [menu_order] => 0 [post_type] => tribe_events [post_mime_type] => [comment_count] => 0 [filter] => raw [EventStartDate] => 2020-01-21 12:30:00 [EventEndDate] => 2020-01-21 13:30:00 )
