505 Chicagoans Murdered in 2012; Including 108 Young People

In all, 505 (mostly Black and Latino) Chicagoans were murdered in 2012, including 108 young people.

The murder rate increased by a whopping 19%.

The awesome Black Star Project took the liberty of collecting the names of the 108 young people who tragically lost their lives to violence this year.

We too wish to honor these young lives taken from us far too soon:
