UCLA Professor of Education, Pedro Noguera, and Khary Lazarre-White will speak about their work with The Brotherhood/Sister Sol, a nationally renowned, comprehensive youth de-velopment and educational organization. Khary will also read from and discuss his novel Passage (Seven Stories Press, 2017), which tells the story of Warrior, a young black man in Harlem and Brooklyn in 1993 whose experiences bear a striking resemblance to those of black male youth today. Khary received his B.A. in Africana Studies from Brown University and his JD from Yale Law School, where his focus was international human rights law and constitutional law.
