Chasing Crows presents the true events of a child born to poverty and subjected to a dysfunctional household. Stricken with illiteracy and having experienced molestation, a young Kevin Brown failed both the 3rd and 7th grades in school. As a teen Kevin became involved in gangs and was later convicted of armed robbery and sentenced to prison at the age of 18. Despite his misfortunes and emotional battles, Kevin promised to redeem himself once he was released from prison. Once released, he became a single parent of his eldest son. Only having completed the 9th grade and possessing a GED which he obtained in prison, Kevin set out on an inspirational journey for redemption, to become a role model for his sons and to inspire and uplift his community and nation. Majoring in accounting at one of the 30 largest universities in America, Wayne State University in Detroit, Michigan, Kevin became the first African American to be elected president of its School of Business Administration’s student government. Through his determination and relentless pursuit of excellence, the little boy who was once considered illiterate and a statistical failure was recognized as one of the premier business students in Michigan and was showered with accolades from the university where he received both his Bachelor of Science degree in accounting and his Master in Business Administration.
Chasing Crows shares in intimate detail the tragedies and triumphs of Kevin’s journey from dismal beginnings to being recognized as one of the most prolific students to ever attend Wayne State University. This is truly one of the great stories of our time and inspires each of us to relentlessly pursue our dreams, passions and purpose without discernment or doubt.
