BLACK ON BLACK CRIME SUMMIT
Kansas City has consistently been near the top of the list for murders per 100,000 population for many years now. We take a drop of 5, 10 or 15 murders from the previous year as good news but the fact is that seldom happens and still leaves us high on the list. There have been a number of programs and efforts over the years to try to effect a permanent change but to no avail. Many families count victims and perpetrators among their own. It is no secret that the majority of murders in our city are young black men killing other young black men.
On Today’s program host Melvin Merritt talks with Pat Clark, President of the Oak Park Neighborhood Association and 5th District Councilman Pastor Michael Brooks about the upcoming Black on Black Crime Summit that they are hosting.
Ain’t Nobody Killing Us But Us will be held Friday May 6th, starting at 6 PM CDT, at the SE Fieldhouse Swope Parkway and Meyer Blvd, KCMO.
Everyone is invited to start the dialogue about bringing families and the community back together.
