Black youth in Chicago and the future of American politics

A Medill Newsmakers Report

By Jasmine Cen

In this episode of Medill Newsmakers, we invited three guests to help us understand the black youth in Chicago.

Three topics were discussed during the show: how community violence impacts the black youth in Chicago, who the young activists are, and what the political scientist thinks about the protests led by the young activists in Chicago.
