What The Brotherhood/Sister Sol is doing is not just rescuing black kids who live in Harlem. It’s helping to rescue the soul of the United States, because we have failed to come to terms with the legacy of slavery and its aftermath. They are rescuing the future from the past. They are investing in our collective future.
Professor Lani Guinier, Harvard Law School
The Brotherhood/Sister Sol’s official curriculum has the ‘flava,’ power and demonstrated ‘street cred’ to transform young people through a thorough exploration of community, culture, history — and self. This ‘youth-centric’ work should be used by public schools, private schools, youth development agencies, civic groups, cultural institutions, faith based organizations and families. Society cannot afford to allow healthy social, spiritual, and intellectual development for children of color to become an offensive and destructive oxymoron.
