R.A.W. is dismantling stereotypes; starting with the idea that African American men don’t read. On their own accord, participants suggested starting a book club and have maintained the practice for over one year, selecting new titles as a group and serving as a shining example of The Dream Team’s participant-led methodology at work. The participants of R.A.W. shape the program and are fully invested in this ongoing book club, where they read and discuss works that are relevant to their life experiences and desires for self-improvement.
