June 4, 2013 (CHICAGO)

The students will have a follow-up visit to continue their discussion on violence. Back in April, Obama was in Chicago and addressed the issue. In the past year, 29 current or former students of Harper High School have been shot. Eight have died.

The students will also do some sightseeing and visit Howard University while in Washington.
