We hear the story of a long-lost opera written by a Chicago man considered the city’s first Hispanic composer from his great grandson who is bringing the opera to life. WBEZ’s Monica Eng has details on a plan to reduce food waste in the US. She also tells us about a proposal that could lead to legalized food carts in Chicago. Plus, the latest on how a group of moms is trying to keep Englewood streets free from gun violence. We get a reaction to the announcement from Chicago’s Independent Police Review Authority recommending that an officer be fired for shooting to death a young woman while he was off-duty. And we check in with Dyett High School hunger strikers one month into their strike.
