Too many youth in Baltimore either lose a loved one to gun violence or fall victim themselves. Blessed is the Peacemaker is a short documentary that profiles Tard Carter, an Outreach Worker for Safe Streets, as he works to stop gun violence and promote peace in his neighborhood of McElderry Park in Baltimore City. This video was produced in the Spring of 2013 by Mentoring Video Project Youth Producers Taqi Juba, Ghani Muhammad, Evodie Ngoy, Tyson Sandford-Griffin, and Joshua White, USA
