NPR’s award winning podcast Embedded comes to Chicago with an interactive, live presentation. Host Kelly McEvers will discuss the death of Jonathan Ferrell, an unarmed black man in Charlotte, shot and killed by a police officer. The presentation puts the audience at the center of the story and shows that videos of these shootings can sometimes complicate cases. Afterwards, she’ll host a discussion about the shooting death of Laquan McDonald and how that case will impact future cases.
Kelly will be joined by Joe McMahon, who prosecuted the police officer who shot McDonald, and Jenn White, the host of the WBEZ podcast 16 Shots.
Doors open at 7 p.m.
