Author speaks at M.S.W. orientation

Author Mark Anthony Rolo was a guest at the orientation program for master's of social work students this fall. He spoke about his memoir, My Mother Is Now Earth. The book tells the story of Rolo's family, as seen through his eyes from the time he was 7 years old until his mother died when he was 10. The story gave students and faculty the opportunity to discuss issues related to race, class, gender, identity and social justice. In this video, Rolo talks to students about writing the book.

To learn more about Rolo, read the article from Minnesota, the University of Minnesota alumni magazine.
