About My Brother's Keeper:

Personal stories provide a glimpse into the lives of the writers, inviting the reader in while allowing the writer to reflect upon their life. Through writing, both writer and reader benefit, providing the opportunity to educate, enlighten and empower. As Detroit continues to undergo a range of political, social and economic discussion, we must consider the voices of experts: the citizens of Detroit. The individuals who create the culture, community and commerce of Detroit. As young Black males, the students from Paul Robeson Malcolm X Academy have valuable lived experiences that must be taken into account as we aim to rebuild Detroit. Through the My Brother's Keeper Spring 2014 Sessions, Detroit students, MBK Coordinators and other voices in the community will work on compiling personal stories surrounding Detroit. Taking inspiration from The Freedom Writer's Diary, the hope is to provide a vivid account of personalized narratives of those who are most impacted by the progress within Detroit, and thus those who have the power to change it.
