Holding Fast to Dreams by Freeman A. Hrabowski, III

Holding Fast to Dreams: Empowering Youth from the Civil Rights Crusade to STEM Achievement  by Freeman A. Hrabowski, III

 

At first when I finished Holding Fast to Dreams I felt a sense of braggadocio. I had to think about it. I believe this is mostly because I was expecting something more autobiographical.  

While the book does contain some autobiographic background, the focus is on Hrabowski's accomplishments. Ultimately, I came to the conclusion that it's not so much braggadocio as  "I did this. You can do it, too."  Hrabowski is offering UMBC as an example of success  both to other campuses and to students and would be students. From this perspective it's an interesting read for anyone interested in higher education and those seeking ideas for improving it.

I see a world where all people accept each other as friends and neighbors, and celebrate each person's uniqueness as a vital part of everyone's life, like threads in a tapestry. -F. Shafer Junaid
