Fordham Conversations: Bullets, Recovery, Shovels, Guns

Fordham Conversations: Bullets, Recovery, Shovels, Guns
This week we hear what it's like to recover from a gunshot wound, and one Mexican artist's effort to curb gun violence
On this week’s Fordham Conversations we hear how an artist and a blogger are bringing attention to the issue of gun violence in their own personal ways. 

Mexican Artist Pedro Reyes discusses his performance and community engagement art project “Palas por Pistolas: Shovels for Guns,” while Fordham University’s Dr. Jo Anna Isaak and Father Gregory Waldrop discuss bringing the project to New York City.  We also hear from NYU Professor Antonius Wiriadjaja, who has chronicled the experience of being the innocent victim of a drive-by shooting.

You can check out Antonius' blog here.
