Unrest in Chicago After Shooting Of Black Man on the City's Southside

We discuss the ongoing tensions between police and residents in Chicago that have lead to clashes in the streets, and have turned violent at times; five years after Black Lives Matter coalesced into a national movement for social and racial justice, a co-founder reflects on the group's progress and impact; we take a look at the message of Obama’s speech and the ways in which he looks through Mandela’s lens to discuss how we can achieve a more inclusive democracy; then a look more specifically at Mandela’s legacy in South Africa and around the world; and Chef Edward Lee discuses the multilayered melting pot of American cuisine.
