Relevance

The streets are still preying expands on my earlier research about urban Black female youth’s violence victimization and perpetration. Many urban Black female youth fall prey to the street-life subculture often identified as “the hustle.” The fractured stories of these female youth have been and still go untold. An in-depth analysis of the tragic stories of their lives provides convincing evidence and insightful explanations of the intersection of street-life involvement and personal experiences of violence (i.e., fatal violence perpetrator, fatal violence victim, family violence victim, school fighting perpetrator, and street-fight involvement). “
