Morning Shift

Morning Shift: July 21, 2015

There were a number of Chicagoans last night telling Chicago Police Superintendent Garry McCarthy what’s on their minds. It was the final stop of the Chicago Police Department’s listening tour. We get a recap from from WBEZ’s Patrick Smith. In more law enforcement news, we speak with WBEZ's Chip Mitchell about Lorenzo Davis's firing from Chicago's Independent Police Review Authority. And did you that out of the 5,193 public outdoor sculptures of individuals in the US, only 394 are women? There’s a movement a foot in Chicago and New York to change that. We hear from three women leading the charge. We’re also going to hear more about a theatre festival that pairs Latino/Latina playwrights around the country with some hispanic Chicago directors. And we’ve got the Americana sounds of The Mike & Ruthy Band. They’re in town to play with B-52’s singer Kate Pierson.
