Born and raised on Milwaukee’s Northside, author and lecturer Brother Ajamou Butler has always been one to progress from his pain. Growing up in Milwaukee’s notorious 53206 zip code, Butler was exposed to the uglier sides of poverty. His experiences with poverty up-close as a child have shaped his outlook on life as an adult. In May 2012, Butler launched his non-profit organization, Heal the Hood MKE. Heal the Hood MKE has grown to be an example of pushing against social injustice and rewriting the narrative of inner-city Milwaukee.
