How Reverend Peterson Mingo Turned To Activism

Reverend Peterson Mingo has been leading a Peace Bowl for 12 years with the goal of breaking down barriers between neighborhoods. The first year, the football game was interrupted by a deadly shooting but that did not deter the teams and the Peace Bowl has come back year after year to grow bigger than ever.

Reverend Mingo is also known as a prominent figure in Cincinnati's anti-violence movement and a program manager with the Cincinnati Initiative to Reduce Violence. He joins Cincinnati Edition to discuss how he turned to activism.
