Rye Barcott

May 19, 2011 @ 7:00 PM - 12:00 AM

In the summer of 2000, Barcott was a college student about to join the Marines. He spent part of that summer living in a slum in Kenya, where he befriended a widowed nurse and a community organizer. The trio formed Carolina for Kibera, an organization that helps develop leaders in the impoverished region. Barcott’s recent memoir, It Happened on the Way to War: A Marine’s Path to Peace, details his experiences as a global humanitarian and a Marine. More information.
