This is part 3 of a 3-part series on gun violence in Chicago, in schools and in our culture. Our producers had an unscripted Q&A with Dion McGill, Program Manager at the Illinois Council Against Handgun Violence.
We talk about the influence of pop culture, rap, social media, economics, police shootings, Chicago history, and how we can work together to make a difference.
