Khali Sweeney was going to end up in jail. Then he real­ized he could make a change. After teach­ing him­self to read, he start­ed Down­town Box­ing Gym in Detroit, Michi­gan. He’s helped more than 300 inner-city kids trans­form their lives, too. Let’s see what Khali believes about empow­er­ing peo­ple to take charge of their futures – espe­cial­ly peo­ple soci­ety ignores.
