Series Description
"Now in its fifth year, the Chicago Matters project, a collaborative effort of WTTW, The Chicago Community Trust, and WBEZ radio, grapples with a hot topic that is on the minds of people everywhere--violence. The four programs in the series all address a different aspect of violence, concentrating on rehabilitation, understanding and weapon control ... GROWING UP SCARED addresses the concerns of children and their parents ... [It] outlines the benefits of many violence prevention programs and highlights the Slick Boys, a group of Chicago police officers who use their musical skills to spread the word on the danger of gang violence."--excerpts from 1994 Peabody Awards entry form.
