Black History Month Empowerment Sessions (Alex Ihama & Spider Jones)

Celebrating Stories of Resilience and Tenacity

Imagine being born in 1946 into poverty, violence and bigotry, a year after the Second World War that tore the world into pieces and just before the era of the Civil Rights Movement.

Against all odds, Spider rose from the gang-infested treacherous streets of Detroit to become one of the most inspiring speakers of our time.

At age six, Spider’s eighteen-month-old, brother Dennis, suddenly died of pneumonia, leaving him traumatized.

After failing grade three twice, he was diagnosed with a learning disability and transferred to a remedial class before dropping out of school at the age of fifteen.

Shortly after he joined a vicious Detroit, a street gang called the Motor City Mobsters and within six years had risen to the top as the gang’s War Lord.

His larcenous ways eventually cost him his freedom, but something even much more precious was lost.

During those turbulent years, he lost two first cousins, both shot to death during gang confrontations.

Another close relative was critically stabbed during a brawl and hovered at death’s edge for weeks.

A few years later, Spider’s younger brother was wounded by police in an attempted bank robbery.

Today, Spider Jones is an award-winning Canadian journalist, author, and former amateur boxer, and a former three-time Golden Glove Champion who was inducted into the Canadian Boxing Hall of Fame in 1996.

As a sparring partner for such boxing legends as George Chuvalo and former World Heavyweight Champion Jimmy Ellis, and a member of Muhammad Ali's training camp back in the days when 'The Greatest' fought Chuvalo.

As a media personality, he has interviewed celebrities like Muhammad Ali, James Brown, Ringo Starr, Mark Wahlberg, Jesse Jackson, Russell Crowe, Mike Tyson, Wayne Gretzky, Smokey Robinson, Sugar Ray Leonard, LL Cool J, Jamie Foxx, Michael Jordon, Bishop Benjamin Tutu, Roy Jones, Kris Kristofferson, etc.
