Youth Shout Out Against Violence

This week, host Richard Steele discussed a new initiative called Youth Shout Out. The project aims to create a youth think tank to curb violence. For that conversation, we heard from: • Toni Irving, PhD, Executive Director of Get In Chicago. Get In Chicago invests in programs targeted at at-risk youth. It also helps create partnerships between public and private sector organizations to make communities safer. • David O’Donnell, Associate Partner at gravitytank, an innovation and design company. • Pam Morris – Pam is with Allstate and supports the company’s corporate social responsibility efforts. We are also here with: • Evelyn Samano, an 18 year old from the South Side. She is a participant in Youth Shout Out. Then we heard from Audra Wilson of Practically Speaking. Though traveling can be an incredibly rewarding experience, there are still challenges for travelers of color, in particular. To explore the rewards and challenges of international travel, Audra Wilson sat down with Asha Veal Brisebois, founder and project editor of The Places We’ve Been. The book features works from over 48 writers who have lived on every continent. The Barber Shop Show airs on Fridays and Saturdays at Noon on 91.1FM and 90.7FM.
