TEDxBroadway 2017: Desmond Patton Discusses Social Media’s Connection to Gang Violence
Did you miss this year’s TEDxBroadway? Or do you want to relive the magic? We’ll be sharing videos of all the talks from this year’s conference over the next few weeks here on Selling Out. Or if you’re in a binge-watching mood, you can catch them all now at TEDxBroadway.com.
Today, we’re watching Desmond Patton, whose work as a social worker and researcher led him to create Safe Lab, which brings together youth voices with social workers and computer scientists to solve problems of gang violence. Patton encourages his audience to discover and tell more complete stories about black and latino youth, in order to see them for who they really are.
