Young playwrights use the theater to confront the trauma of gun violence

From PBS NewsHour.

In 2021, more than 1,500 children and teenagers in the United States were killed by gunfire. Activists across the country are working to shed light on that issue through a series of plays written and performed by young adults, many of whom have had direct experience with gun violence. Jeffrey Brown has the story for our arts and culture series, "CANVAS."
