Ricky Kidd was wrongfully convicted of a double homicide in 1996 and spent 23 years of his life fighting to prove his innocence. He was exonerated in August of 2019. Less than 2 years as a free man, Ricky has chosen to turn his negative into a positive, has decided to be better opposed to bitter, and to walk in his faith over fear. He is sharing his story of resilience, tragedy and triumph; all while raising awareness about wrongful convictions, the importance of quality leadership, and how we all can create a positive impact in this world. Ricky Kidd’s ability to speak from the soul and connect with others has resonated with people across the globe; using his unique gift to break down social barriers and use the rubble to build new opportunities. “I was forced to become the light, illuminating everything in sight, I was forced to become the oxygen if ever I was to breathe again” says Ricky Kidd, in his book of spoken words.
