On Tuesday February 21st at the Chicago Cultural Center, Ameena Matthews told the story of a recent violence interruption – one that ended, as they frequently do, with the participants in her car, whisked away from the scene to give them enough space to regain their cool. Her car packed full of teenage boys, she hit Lakeshore Drive. “Is that the ocean?” one of the boys asked. Because of gang boundaries, these youths had never seen Lake Michigan.
