Promises Kept: Raising Black Boys to Succeed in School and in Life

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.

This event is part of Open Society Institute–Baltimore’s Talking About Race series, co-sponsored by the Enoch Pratt Free Library.

The event is free and open to the public.
