“It is easier to build strong children than to repair broken men.” -Fredrick Douglas Rev. David Smith fills in for Lilada Gee on this edition of A Public Affair. There have been a number of key issues that have been raised regarding Madison teens. One of the issues that has received a lot of attention is the youth mall ban at East and West Towne malls. Smith expands the conversation on the mall curfew by asking: Why are many people upset about the mall ban when there are so many other serious issues that are facing our youth in Madison? Smith discusses this and other issues facing black youth today with parents Antonette Crosby and Anthony Ward.
