Monday, July 30, 2012
In 1968, following the death of Martin Luther King, Jr., the Reverend John Brooks, a professor of theology at the College of the Holy Cross recruited 20 African American high school students he felt had the potential to succeed if given an opportunity. Diane Brady tells the story of five of these men, among them were Clarence Thomas, Edward P. Jones, and Theodore Wells. In Fraternity, she looks at how their years at Holy Cross shaped them, and how they went on to shape our country.
