Brief Program Description

Many urban Black female youth fall prey to the street-life subcultures often identified as “the hustle,” “the game,” “the corner,” “the life,” and “the hood.” It should be noted, with regret, that the fractured stories of these female youth have been and still go untold. An in-depth analysis of the tragic stories of their lived experiences provides convincing evidence and insightful explanations of the intersection of street-life involvement and fatal violence in the experiences of these “at-risk” Black female youth.
