Event Description

Gang and drug warfare fuels violence and leads to prison or death for countless youth, mostly minority males; this well-worn pattern plagues cities across the world. Criminologist and author of Don’t Shoot, David M. Kennedy, tells how he addressed this scourge in the 1990s with the successful “Boston Miracle.” Rev. Dr. Emmett Price, who counsels at-risk Boston youth through hip hop music, discusses funeral fatigue, copycat criminals, and the new rules of engagement. U.S. Attorney for Massachusetts Carmen Ortiz shares with us her plans to mitigate violent crime through the Organized Crime Strike Force/Gang Unit.

 

The three come together with Ford Hall Forum Vice President Donald Tye for a conversation about the past, present, and future of inner-city youth violence in Boston and beyond.
