Meet Dr. Belay Reddick

The ACLU reports that the United States holds the unfortunate title of “The World’s Leading Jailer.” With just 5% of the world’s population, it has 25% of its inmates. 2.3 Million people are behind bars and another 5.6 million are under correctional supervision - a system of mass incarceration that is costing taxpayers $85 billion a year.

In 2005, Dr. Belay Reddick was one of the statistics. He was serving twenty years in prison for a non-violent offense. During those years, he lost more than his freedom. He lost touch with his three children.

Dr. Reddick is often labeled the "poster child" for the three Rs: rehabilitation, redemption and reentry. Dr. Reddick's remarkable story has inspired thousands and worth replicating many more times. 

In the summer of 2019, Dr. Reddick wrote a letter to FedEx World Headquarters about second chance hiring for felons, which ended up on founder and chairman Frederick Smith’s desk. After the FedEx peak season ended, key HR leaders from the company visited Dr. Reddick at a federal prison in Arkansas, where he was housed. Four months later, Dr. Reddick went from ex-fed to FedEx.

He believes in an America that is as good as its promise, an America committed to justice – economic, racial, social, health care and environmental justice – for all of us.

Author of There's No Danger in the Water, Now, Let Me Tell You How I Really Feel, and Interactive Journal of Mentoring and Coaching Values in the Classroom, Dr. Reddick’s story has been featured on CBS-3 News Memphis, ABC-24 News Memphis, Fox-29 News Philadelphia, NBC-5 News Dallas, Fox-4 News Fort Worth, Florida Star, Jacksonville Free Press, and Florida Times-Union.

Today, he provides young men at risk of becoming disengaged from school and are at most risk of harm interactive learning opportunities where they can engage in a positive and safe space.

When Dr. Reddick is not traveling to speak, he resides in Dallas with his wife Shinita.
