Gilbert Allen, left, and his brother Michael Allen are seen in Chicago on May 7, 2021. The two wrote “Brotherly Love,” a book that recounts that painful but transformational period of Gilbert and Michael’s life. The book is aimed at 5th through 8th graders, which is a population that Michael nurtures and cultivates every day as a principal at Oakton Elementary in Evanston.
