This week, host Richard Steele was joined by folks from City Bureau. They’ll talk about their recent batch of work, digging into police misconduct and young black activism in Chicago.
We were joined by

• Darryl Holliday, Editor with City Bureau,
as well as:
• Chaclyn Hunt. She is a civil rights attorney who directs the Youth/Police Project at the Invisible institute.

Then, we got a preview from Audra Wilson about the latest installment of Practically Speaking. She spoke with Kimberly Norwood, Law Professor at Washington University in St. Louis. Norwood is also author of the new book “Ferguson’s Fault Lines: The Race Quake That Rocked A Nation”.
Finally, a United Nations "Working Group of Experts on People of African Descent" was in Chicago last weekend to gather "first-hand information about the current human rights situation of African Americans." We heard an audio postcard.
