NY Writers Coalition & Apogee Journal are proud to present To the Allies, a collection of prose and poetry written by the deeply talented students at GUMBO (Great United Minds Believing in Ourselves), an after school workshop for teens at Benjamin Banneker Academy in Clinton Hill, Brooklyn, New York.
GUMBO is made possible through the initiative of Cultural After School Adventures (CASA), and is also supported in part by the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs, the City Council, and New York City Council Member Laurie Cumbo.
