First Person: Yasser Payne and former Wilmington Mayor James Baker

    During First Person we look at what might be the root cause of violence in Delaware’s largest city.

     

    The irony of the attack at Howard High School of Technology is that it took place the same day eight Democrats running for Wilmington mayor in the September primary were supposed to debate at the school. The topic for the debate was violence and crime in Wilmington. During First Person we look at what might be the root cause of violence in Delaware’s largest city. We are joined by Yasser Payne, a UD professor in the Black American Studies Department, and former Wilmington Mayor James Baker.
