Author, professor, and filmmaker MK Asante visited YouthBuild on Monday during lunch to read from his memoir Buck.  Mr. Asante talked to students about his experience growing up in Philadelphia and dropping out of multiple schools, and answered their questions about themes in Buck and his creative process.
