Mo explores this question by examining Teach For America, a prominent national service program that integrates top college graduates into low-income communities for two years.
The event is being held in conjunction with an art exhibit that will feature the photographs of author, poet, musician, and Civil Rights activist and photographer, Julius Lester.
