“My Brother’s Keeper” is a program launched by President Barack Obama in the wake of the Trayvon Martin killing.
The program uses mentors to advise young African-American men in need of guidance.
It’s already in numerous cities, including Columbus and Dayton.
And it will be launched in Cleveland with a July 8 rally at Patrick Henry Middle School.
Senator Sherrod Brown has played a leading role in bringing the program here.
He is crediting a number of players, including Federal Judge Solomon Oliver, Antioch Baptist Church Reverend Todd Davidson and Congresswoman Marcia Fudge, with laying the groundwork for this effort.
