Current Feature Author:

📚 Judge Leonia J. Lloyd ❤

About Author:  judge

Author’s words: “I wrote this book especially for people, from all walks of life, to believe in themselves and their dreams, and to understand that education and a strong work ethic are the formula for success,” says Judge Lloyd, a popular commencement speaker. “I also want to show my life as an example that when life delivers tragedies, and you think you can’t go on, you can rely on faith and loving people to heal, recover, and continue making a positive contribution to the world.”

Judge Lloyd did that in 2001 after the sudden death of her sister, Judge Leona L. Lloyd. She performed CPR on her twin, who died instantly of cardiac arrest.

In the midst of her paralyzing grief, many people-and the power of faith-helped Judge Lloyd, and she ultimately returned to Detroit’s 36th District Court. There she continued the legacy that she and her sister started, by joining the Drug Treatment Court, which aimed to help people escape a vicious cycle of addiction and crime.

Judge Lloyd also implemented Project Fresh Start to help people who practiced the act of prostitution recover from addiction and enjoy healthy, productive lives. Thousands of people have graduated from these “restorative justice” programs to create stable, happier lifestyles.

In the book, Judge Lloyd, who is now retired, shares stories about:

  • The mental illness that her mother-Registered Nurse Mattie N. Lloyd-suffered after a brain hemorrhage.
  • The commitment that her father-auto body mechanic Leon T. Lloyd Jr.-demonstrated by keeping the family together to raise two successful daughters despite racism, his wife’s multiple personalities and breakdowns, and later, his struggles with alcoholism.
  • Situations that showcase her parents’ words of wisdom and actions that taught the girls discipline, perseverance, and determination to triumph over challenges.
  • Racial unrest, the 1967 Detroit insurrection, and how wearing an afro drew disapproval from her boss and colleagues at a job during college.
  • Examples of people whose lives were transformed by Drug Treatment Court and Project Fresh Start, for persons who practiced the act of prostitution.
  • How she led the creation and implementation of Michigan’s second Veteran’s Treatment Court.
  • Examples that illustrated how the powerful bond between the twin sisters could not be broken by death.
  • A powerful testament to the power of faith that provided the people, synchronicities, and strength to heal from paralyzing grief and carry on the spirit of her sister by making a positive impact on thousands of people during her tenure on the bench.
