Based on the forthcoming book of the same name, this talk recounts the lessons Reverend Brown learned working with street and drug gangs in the inner city of Boston, and his larger work of bringing together conflicting constituencies in civil society for peace. At a time when division is prominent, Reverend Brown charts a way forward to bring people together.
