A panel discussion of the new book Fraternity featuring alumni of the College of the Holy Cross
In 1968, shortly after the assassination of Martin Luther King, Jr., John Brooks, S.J., of the College of the Holy Cross set out to recruit a group of African Americans to attend the small Catholic college in Worcester, Massachusetts. Among those he would bring to the school were Clarence Thomas and Theodore V. Wells, Jr. In the new book Fraternity, author Diane Brady follows five of the young men Fr. Brooks recruited to Holy Cross, a group that also included the respected novelist Edward P. Jones. In this panel discussion Diane Brady joins Mr. Wells, Fr. Brooks and Dr. Malcolm Joseph, class of 1971.
