Bring some Scottie Tissues and clap like no one is watching for this real-life fairytale. 

Lesra Martin, a kid who at age six goes from a middle-class life to having to survive on the violent streets of Bedford-Stuyvesant and Bushwick. At ten he starts to work to put food on his troubled family's table. Despite his regular school attendance, he remained illiterate until he was 16 years old.

So what does Lesra Martin have to do with three Canadians? And what do they all have to do with getting Rubin Hurricane Carter freed in 1985?  You won’t believe it until you can hear it. 

An incredible story, packed with life lessons and observations and one essential question.  How many Lesra Martin’s are there out there who with a little love and encouragement could also change the world and the face of humanity.

Share this story and why the impossible is always possible.
