Join Dr. Lamarr Darnell Shields for an insightful book conversation on What I Learned in the Midst of KAOS: The Making of An Ubuntu Teacher. The book contains srategies to motivate, uplift, and empower boys of color. It is in part a coming-of-age story about how Dr. Shields responded to the chaos in his life, first as a young man and student growing up on the South Side of Chicago, then as a college student and community leader, and finally as a man who became an Ubuntu teacher. The stories also juxtapose his years as a high-risk male, growing up in gang territory, and being expelled from school with his years as a Teach for America corps member and classroom teacher. They also chronicle his journey to becoming a social entrepreneur, fighting for academic and social equity for urban youth. A book signing follows.
