Buffalo NY Day of Empathy

March 05, 2019 at 10am - 12pm | Buffalo Academy for Visual and Performing Arts | 450 Masten Ave Buffalo , NY 14209 United States | Map and directions ›

Buffalo Academy for Visual and Performing Arts is proud to welcome  TheArthur Duncan. Hear the inspirational life story of Buffalo native TheArthur Duncan.  Mr. Duncan’s journey takes him from a difficult home life, gang run-ins in Los Angeles, and trafficking drugs on the streets of Buffalo to a felony conviction and incarceration.  Upon release from prison, he attended and graduated from Erie County Community College and the University at Buffalo, while working full time and supporting his family of six.  With no assurance that he would be admitted to the Bar to practice law, Duncan continued to persevere in spite of seemingly insurmountable hurdles and graduated from the University at Buffalo School of Law in 2012.  Mr. Duncan’s journey eventually led him to be sworn in as an attorney by the same judge who sentenced him for his criminal conviction years earlier in federal court. In 2015, Duncan authored an inspiring autobiography, “Felon-Attorney,” recounting his journey.

This is a closed event and is not open to the public.
