Citizen Outlaw: From Gang Leader to Peacekeeper
Tuesday, March 3, Branford
Join the Harvard Club for a truly special evening as we hear and learn from an extraordinary man, William Juneboy Outlaw III, subject of Charles Barber's book, Citizen Outlaw. Charles Barber, AB '85, recounts the story of Outlaw's journey from a gang leader who controlled New Haven's streets as a teenager to a man in his twenties facing an 85 year federal prison sentence for murder to his reformation behind bars and finally, to his 10+ year mission to steer New Haven's young people away from his path. In the 10+ years that William Outlaw has been working with the city's young people, violent crime rate in New Haven has dropped by 70%.
We will welcome Mr. Barber and Mr. Outlaw to the beautiful Willoughby Wallace Memorial Library in Branford for a first hand account of Mr. Outlaw's journey and the stories behind this unique friendship and working relationship between author and subject.
This event is free of charge, but seating is strictly limited and we expect to quickly fill to capacity. Entry will be restricted to people who RSVP below in advance.
Light refreshments will be served.
