The program is divided into 3 sections. It begins with a chronology of the events around the murders and disappearances of Atlanta's youth since 1979. The psychological effects of the murders on the children in Atlanta's communities is discussed. And the final section explores some of the theories around who is responsible for the murders.
Actuality is provided by two of the mothers of the slain children: Venus Taylor and Camille Bell; political activists Dick Gregory and Angela Davis, and Stanford University psychologist Irvin Brown. There is also a poem by Ntozake Shange.
Produced by Damali Cruz and Khensu-RA. Technical assistance was provided by Kevin Vance. Originally aired on the Behind The News hour, and this recording includes the announcer from that program and a musical break.
