Mark Zuckerberg’s Testimony Before European Union, More Aid Coming To Puerto Rico From Chicago, And The Outlaw Narrative In Jamaican Reggae And Dancehall Music

On today's show:

  • Members of the European Parliament gathered in Brussels yesterday to question embattled Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg about the Cambridge Analytica scandal, the platform’s compliance with a new European privacy law, and other concerns about Facebook’s protections for users. To discuss, we’re joined by Zizi Papacharissi, professor of political science and communications department chair at the University of Illinois at Chicago.
  • It’s been nine months since Hurricane Maria struck Puerto Rico, and austerity measures make it difficult to meaningfully invest in rebuilding. Cristina Pacione-Zayas, co-chair of the Puerto Rican Agenda of Chicago, joins us to discuss aid coming from Chicago.
  • Within Jamaica’s history of slavery and British colonization, there also existed a history of rebellion and resistance. On this week’s Global Notes, Worldview production assistant Galilee Abdullah talks about this outlaw narrative in reggae and dancehall music.
