The Right Side Forum, an hour-long conservative live news and talk show hosted by columnist Armstrong Williams, offers a close look at a distinct reality for a growing number of young people. “The rate of violent crime is rising across the nation. Unfortunately, many young adults feel as if they have been affected - and disproportionately victimized - by this trend for years,” Armstrong points out.

“Politicians, pundits and most members of the media haven’t been paying attention, or listening when they raise their voices. As a result, many have given up, and/or taken to the streets,” he continues.

This week his guests will talk about how death shapes their lives, and how their contemporaries who are surrounded by violence can beat the odds. The forum members include Colin Byrd, a student activist at the University of Maryland; Ivan Cloyd, a member of Alliance of Concerned Men and a motivational speaker; Joseph Howard, CFO of Timeless Money Management and a student at Wiley College; and Akili West, a community activist and co-founder, of Reclamation Energy, LLC.

“It really bothers me that there are so many young people who have had to think so much about death, Armstrong says. “They are surrounded by violence, as well as sicknesses of the body, mind and spirit. That’s got to stop. Several young adults are going to join me on The Right Side Forum to reval how death has shaped their lives. It is a great opportunity to closely listen to their concerns - so we can take action in ways that can shape a better future for all of us.”

The show, which debuted in January, airs live on Saturday mornings at 10:30 a.m. on News Channel 8 in the Washington, D.C. area, and repeats again at 6:30 p.m.
