Knowing that their own African-American son, Idris, would face challenges as he navigated school, Michele Stephenson and Joe Brewster filmed the experience and produced an award-winning documentary, American Promise. Their work continues as they share the latest research and personal anecdotes in their new book Promises Kept: Raising Black Boys to Succeed in School and in Life. OSI-Baltimore board member Robin Wood will serve as moderator.
This event is part of OSI-Baltimore’s Talking About Race series, co-sponsored by the Enoch Pratt Free Library. The event is free and open to the public.
