    Tonight on Basic Black: youth violence in Boston. The last few weeks have been witness to the horrific and brutal murders of several young people and with the onset of summer, we will discuss prevention strategies to combat youth violence. Among the many questions we will explore:

- What is the role of city government?
- How should the Boston Police Department approach policing Boston’s communities of color?- Are there any strategies that haven’t been tried or are there lessons to be learned from other communities facing the same issue?- How do you begin to heal the psyche of communities experiencing murder in their midst? Join us at 7:30pm on channel 2 in Boston or live at (where you can also participate in a live chat).
