The Latin American Graduate Organization is proud to present Anderson Sá as the keynote speaker for our conference. Once a gang member, Anderson Sá now devotes his life through Afro-Reggae, a group he helped start, to aid the youth of Brazil‘€™s impoverished favelas through cultural aspects, mainly through music. His life is told in the awe-inspiring film ‘€œFavela Rising‘€ (2005).
