      This chapter addresses the problems facing black children living in gang affected neighborhoods. It argues for a 'social model' for understanding and responding to children's capacity to consent to sexual activity when forced and coerced within gang affected neighborhoods and for a contextual framework to child protection issues facing these young people, their neighborhood and environment.
