Eight Forty-Eight pays tribute to Chicago’s former first lady Maggie Daley with thoughts from local leaders, politicians and patrons of the arts. To learn more about Maggie Daley’s life and legacy, Eight Forty-Eight was joined by Avis LaVelle, an After School Matters board member and one-time press secretary for former Mayor Richard M. Daley, and Lee Bey, who once served as former Mayor Daley’s deputy chief of staff. Then, David Kennedy thinks he knows how to stop gun violence in America’s cities and he says it’s not that hard: WBEZ’s criminal and legal affairs reporter Robert Wildeboer talks with Kennedy about the ideas in his new book, Don’t Shoot. And as part of Front and Center, WBEZ's series examining the critical issues facing the Great Lakes region, reporter Brian Mann explores what life is like for Canadian workers. Cheryl Raye-Stout brings the latest on the end of the NBA lockout and recaps of Sunday’s Bears game against the Oakland Raiders.
