Violence is a major public health problem that threatens the health and lives of America's next generation of adults, particularly African American males and those living in poverty (Christoffel, 1990). Homicide is the 12th leading cause of death in the United States over all (rate of 10.6 per 100,000), the second leading cause of death for 15 to 24 year-olds, and the leading cause of death for African American males and females in that age group (National Center for Injury Prevention and Control, 1995).
