    Pastor Corey Brooks of the New Beginnings Church in Chicago made headlines last year when he crisscrossed the country on a walking tour to raise money to build a community center on the site of an abandoned building near his church. Moved by his story, Tyler Perry made a donation to help defray building costs. Brooks fell short of the $15 million he needs to build the center but did complete the walk from New York to Los Angeles raising over $500,000.

    Sadly, Brooks’ city continues to make headlines for all the wrong reasons. This weekend in Chicago, 13 people were injured in a playground shooting that left a toddler in critical condition. Police say the shooting was gang-related.

    Brooks joined the Tom Joyner Morning Show to talk about increasing gun violence in the city and what can be done to stop it. Listen above.
