Author Talk: The Making of An Ubuntu Teacher

Description: 

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 strategies 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, and going on to become a Teach for America corps member and teacher. KAOS also chronicles his journey to becoming a social entrepreneur, fighting for academic and social equity for urban youth. A book signing follows.

Dr. LaMarr Darnell Shields is a social entrepreneur, inspirational speaker, and educator. He is the Co-Founder and Senior Director of Education and Innovation at the Cambio Group. In conjunction with the exhibition Question Bridge: Black Males.
