Omer Aziz Presents: Brown Boy: A Memoir (Hybrid)

Omer Aziz Presents: Brown Boy: A Memoir (Hybrid) In-Person / Online

Brown Boy, Omer Aziz’s first book, follows his journey through education from a tough neighborhood on the outskirts of Toronto to an academic career that took him to Queen’s University in Ontario, Sciences Po in Paris, Cambridge University in England, and Yale Law School. Aziz’s path is fraught with feelings of doubt and insecurity at being an outsider as a brown-skinned boy in an elite white world. Aziz wrestles with the contradiction of feeling like an Other and his desire to belong to a Western world that never quite accepts him. Brown Boy grapples with the complexities of identity, race and class. Registration is required to participate in this event.
