We’ve all experienced those moments when it feels like the odds are stacked against you in a mighty way. In those moments, your willingness to survive, fight back, and come out on the other side unscathed is critical. But, when the odds are stacked against you in the form of corruption that leads to being wrongly convicted and railroaded into a life sentence in prison, it takes an immense amount of resilience and fortitude to strategically plan a way through a broken unjust system. Isaac Wright, Jr. has experienced this first hand after 7 years imprisoned and 9 additional years under investigation after passing the New Jersey State Bar exam. Isaac speaks to patience, calculated moves, and what it takes to turn anger and bitterness into usable skills that have a real impact.

“Because at that point, I was going to be a slave to somebody else's strategy, somebody else's thought process, and someone else's motives” [2:30]

“The level of corruption that had engulfed me as a young man alone, the book was written before the indictment came down, and that was really my reality.” [5:39]

“My strategy shifted to making sure that when I went to prison, they wasn't going to be able to keep me. And so everything I did was not for the day, everything that I did was for years down the line.” [10:16]

“The more I know about them, and the less they know about me, the better off I am” [13:20]

“One of the things about injustice, if you fight injustice with justice, you wreak havoc upon injustice, it's like water and oil, it's never going to mix” [16:55]

“As a six-year-old kid, I understood the importance of fighting back no matter how much danger you're in.” [21:59]

“I needed to separate myself from what I was going through in order to stay focused and it took me some time, but I literally became a different person. I was representing myself as someone else.” [24:48]

“I always take a granular approach to the things that I'm experiencing in life.” [34:22]
