On the 15th year of Detroit’s annual Silence the Violence march, and in the wake of several mass shootings and Congress nearing a bipartisan agreement on stricter gun control laws, “American Black Journal” examines how gun violence affects communities of color. “Silence the Violence” is organized by Pastor Barry Randolph from the Church of the Messiah.
