The Trace, an outlet covering guns in America, highlighted the Center's involvement in the $1 million grant exploring why young black men carry guns.
From the article:
The National Gun Violence Research Center is funding the two-year effort through four historically Black colleges and universities located in cities facing elevated rates of gun violence (Houston; Wilmington, Delaware; Jackson, Mississippi; and Baltimore). The study will try to understand why Black men between the ages of 15 to 24 carry guns and how they view firearms. “The country is looking for solutions and this is a great place to start,” said Howard Henderson, director of the Center for Justice Research at Texas Southern University and one of the project partners. “Youth gun violence has been absent from the national criminal justice reform conversation.”
