George Anthony on Hope

Posted in News & Media

April 08, 2009
A horrific incident in 1989 helped to guide George Anthony '83NDC toward what has, for him, become a mission.  The death of Yusef Hawkins, a young black man killed in the Bensonhurst neighborhood of Brooklyn, polarized racial tensions in the community after he was confronted by a group of young Italian-American men. In the aftermath, the then psychology teacher was deeply concerned with what he saw happening among the young people in the area. “[The murder] split the school district among racial lines,” he recalls. “It was a terrible time.” So when Columbia University offered a public program in conflict resolution certification, he signed up and has since dedicated himself to helping young people and to becoming an internationally-known expert in the field. His innovative work to combat harassment and bullying in schools was featured on national network programming including the ABC “20/20” special report “Social Cruelty and Bullying in America” and CNN’s highlight of his work as a consultant with the Seeds of Peace program which helps teens in regions of conflict around the world come together to discuss the issues they face in their homeland.
