January 19, 2010 – Hour 2

We speak with Randolph Roth, author of American Homicide.  He offers a historical perspective on violence in the United States, and an explanation of why the United States is today the most homicidal affluent nation in the world.

In the second part of the hour, two Baltimore activists who work to reduce violence in our community join us to continue the discussion with Roth.  Our guests are Dante Wilson, Founder of Reclaiming Our Children and Community Project, and Bishop Douglas Miles, Co-Chairman of BUILD.
