Rye Barcott: Supporting Community-Based Development in Africa
In 2000, before heading into the Marines, Rye Barcott spent part of his summer in Nairobi's Kibera slum researching ethnic violence. His work led to the co-founding of Carolina for Kibera (CFK), a global pioneer of Participatory Development that uses sports to prevent violence, improve healthcare, and promote youth leadership. Engaged in two seemingly contradictory forms of public service at the same time, Barcott continued leading CFK as a Marine intelligence officer; his memoir, It Happened on the Way to War, shows that with the right support, people in desperate places will take charge of their lives and create change. Sylvia Matthews from the Gates Foundation introduces Barcott.  Presented by The Town Hall Center for Civic Life, with University Bookstore. Series media sponsorship provided by PubliCola. Series supported by The Boeing Company Charitable Trust and the RealNetworks Foundation.
