Youth Violence: Inside the Skin

Old Dominion University is presenting the movie, "Youth Violence: Inside the Skin" on May 22nd at 6:30 p.m.

This looks like something I might want to attend as I'd like to hear her take on why we see so much violence in the youth. My theory is that our children have become too alienated from their parents and extended families. I'm convinced that homeschooling will help fix the problem.

The email blurb I received had this to say:

June Mack, Associate Professor at the University of Alabama at Birmingham will present her award-winning movie on Youth Violence. This film explores the violence found in todays youth through interviews and fictional scenarios. Showing perspectives of gang members, incarcerated youth, innocent students, police, parents, teachers, and psychologists, it is an event for everyone to explore and learn from.

Following the 90 minute video, there will be a panel discussion for all attendees.

Panelists to include:
June Mack, Associate Professor at the University of Alabama at Birmingham
Lucien X. Lombardo, Ph.D., Professor of Sociology and Criminal Justice at Old Dominion University
Jean Atkinson, Department Chair of Guidance at Green Run High School
Hosted by David Mc Donald, President of Mediation Center of Hampton Roads.

June Mack is an impressive woman:
She has won 22 international film awards including Student Academy Awards, The International Television Movie Festival, The Ft. Lauderdale Film Festival, and the Canadian International Film Festival. She has had her movies screened across the world, including Canada, Germany, Australia, New Zealand, and of course the U.S.

Currently, Mack is a faculty member for the University of Alabama at Birmingham for the Communication Studies Department.
