Dr. Flowers grew up on Chicago's South Side, ultimately finding a calling to work with young children.

He also completed a doctorate in Education at the Teacher's College of Columbia University in 1995.
His experiences as an educator in tough urban communities shaped his belief in the need for holistic efforts to address the erosion of inner-city neighborhoods.
