Today on Your Call: What are the realities for youth in urban America?

Aug 1, 2012

On today's Your Call, we’ll speak with Jennifer Tilton, author of Dangerous or Endangered? Race and the Politics of Youth in Urban America. She says “We are afraid for our own kids, but deeply fearful of other people’s children.”  What can we do about what Tilton calls our “nation of radically unequal childhoods”?  Join us at 10am PST or post a comment here.  How do communities change when there are resources available to youth? It’s Your Call with Holly Kernan, and you.

Guests:

Jennifer Tilton, author of Dangerous or Endangered? Race and the Politics of Youth in Urban America
