Left Bank Books welcomes urban educator Dr. Chezare Warren, who will sign and discuss his new book, "Urban Preparation: Young Black Men Moving from Chicago's South Side to Success in Higher Education"!
This event is free and open to the public, but proof of purchase of "Urban Preparation" from Left Bank Books will be required to enter the signing line.
Chezare A. Warren chronicles the transition of a cohort of young Black males from Urban Prep Charter Academy for Young Men to their early experiences in higher education. A rich and closely observed account of a mission-driven school and its students, "Urban Preparation" makes a significant contribution to our understanding of how young males of color can best be served in schools throughout the United States today. A founding teacher at Urban Prep, Warren offers a rich portrait of the school and a detailed exploration of what this single-sex public high school on the South Side of Chicago has managed to accomplish amid profoundly challenging circumstances.
