This project first began in 2017 as a collaboration with members of the Male Success Alliance (MSA), an organization at California State University, Dominguez Hills.

Each brother teaches the resilience, liberation, and power that comes from owning different chapters of ourselves. Our lives are textbooks that can be used to educate and empower our communities.
I Am My Brother's Keeper.
