David M. Kennedy: A Working Anti-Violence Plan
Gang- and drug-related inner-city violence is a defining crime problem, and few initiatives have made much difference. But when David M. Kennedy, a self-taught criminologist, engineered the "Boston Miracle" crusade in the 1990s, it cut youth homicide by two-thirds and pointed the way toward a real solution. Kennedy, author of Don't Shoot, details his progress; his "Operation Ceasefire" interventions; and his results in city after city: plummeting violence, dried-up drug markets, and a reset relationship between police and community. Presented by the Town Hall Center for Civic Life with University Book Store. Series media sponsorship provided by PubliCola.
