New Anti-Violence Initiative in Springfield

When an aide to the mayor of Springfield was murdered last month, many community members took it as a sign of how widespread violence has become in the city. They were also reminded of another high-profile homicide two years ago — that of Springfield high school counselor Theodore Brown. Activist Talbert Swan was a friend of both men — and he’s hoping to honor their lives in a new anti-violence initiative. WFCR’s Karen Brown reports.
