WJZ forum to focus on youth issues


Peer pressure and gun violence will be among the topics discussed on "Brother-to-Brother: A Town Meeting," to air on WJZ-TV tomorrow at 7 p.m.

The panel discussion will be moderated by WJZ news anchors Al Sanders and Denise Koch, with guest panelists Nathan McCall, journalist and author of "Makes Me Wanna Holler: A Young Black Man in America"; Damion Quaye, a senior at Baltimore Polytechnic Institute Senior High School; Dr. Rosetta Stith, principal of the Laurence G. Paquin School in Baltimore; Percilla Lynch, a psychologist with Baptist Family & Children's Services; and Washington-based syndicated radio talk show host Armstrong Williams.

The program will allow audience members, made up of area high school students and community leaders, to voice concerns and ask questions about such issues as teen sexuality, employment and educational opportunities, and non-violent conflict resolution.

Created last year, "Brother-to-Brother" attempts to "identify . . . what triggers positive advancement in a sometimes hostile environment for young Baltimore men," according to executive producer Mike Easterling.
