Calling Out Black Men

Mar 18, 2015

In her State of the City address, Baltimore Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake called on black men to do more to prevent violence in the city. Responses have been mixed, with the mayor's plea coming during a time of heightened concern about police misconduct and a run of highly-publicized racial incidents across the country. We’ll get reaction to the mayor's comments from listeners and from men already involved in the lives of at-risk boys and young men: Cameron Miles, director and founder of Mentoring Male Teens in the Hood; James Timpson, director at Park Heights Safe Streets; and David Miller, founder of the Dare to be King Project for African-American boys.
