Brown, a Baraka School Success, is endorsed by governor
Posted 08.16.11 by MICA communications
Baltimore--De'Von Brown, a senior majoring in video and film arts, is the first MICA student to run for Baltimore City Council. Brown, vying for the 12th district seat, was recently endorsed by Gov. Martin O'Malley.
Last year, MICA reported on Brown being the subject of articles, on the Baltimore Sun's front page and in the Washington Post, about his success coming out of the Baraka School. The Boys of Baraka, as they were known, were a group of disadvantaged Baltimore youth sent to a school in Kenya for two years of middle school to try and escape the hardships of life in Charm City. After attending Baraka School, Brown went on to graduate from the Academy for College and Career Exploration in Hampden, where he was also the student class president.
