I have been a board member of BroSis since its beginning, and I am also the mother of Khary Lazarre-White, co-founder and executive director. I could not be more proud of my son, his co-workers and staff, and also of the members, alumni and current, for the inspiring work they do. They are serving not only their community, but the city, and the nation as a whole by articulating a system of values, a way of thinking about individual responsibility and community cooperation. They have created a brilliant curriculum that teaches national and global history, the power of literature and art to affect knowledge and the human spirit, to, in the words of the poet Sekou Sundiata, "stiffen our spines." They demand of youth that they become critical thinkers, questioning assumptions given to them by previous generations, yet respecting previous thinkers by studying their works. I am proud of the stand taken against racism in all its forms, and against sexism and misogyny. They deserve the highest rating.
