Book Talk: Never Ran, Never Will: Boyhood and Football in a Changing American Inner City
Join BuzzFeed criminal justice reporter and author Albert Samaha for the uplifting story of the Mo Better Jaguars, a youth football team offering opportunity, community, and refuge to Brownsville’s young men. Against the backdrop of a Brooklyn community grappling with economic tensions and encroaching gentrification, the gridiron gives these young players the opportunity to forge friendships and their own visions for the future. The author is in conversation with culture writer for The Atlantic, Hannah Giorgis.
