Violence is the second leading cause of death for those aged 18 to 24. For Black youth aged 15 to 24, it has been the leading cause of death since 1978. Connections is an intervention program that integrates adaptive cultural resources from both the dominant American Anglo culture and the African culture. This chapter reviews the Connections program underway in Englewood, one of the poorest communities in Chicago, and its approaches to stemming the violence that pervades the lives of residents.
