What Youth Have To Say About The Unrest In Baltimore

Zeke Berzoff-Cohen/The Intersection

The day after riots shocked the city, several dozen people gathered for what was billed as a youth-led listening session called “Listen Up, Baltimore.”  It was organized by The Intersection, a non-profit that works with high-school students on leadership and college preparation. 

We sat down with three students who had taken  part in the community discussion, and asked them their thoughts on recent events in Baltimore. We hear from Dawnya Johnson, 18; Hassan Banks, 12; and Victorius Swift, 17. 

Sheilah Kast is the host of On The Record, Monday-Friday, 9:30-10:00 am.
