Basic Black Live - Youth Violence: Beyond Crime and Punishment

(Originally broadcast June 24, 2010)  Last week we looked at youth violence as a structural and criminal justice issue.

Brown Peace Institute; Dr. Chidi Achebe, executive director of the Harvard Street Neighborhood Health Center; and Gary Bailey, associate professor of social work, Simmons College.
