Morning Shift: Monday, February 22, 2016

For the latest installment in our Working Shift series, we talk to Petty Officer Second Class Brian Golden of the U.S. Coast Guard about what it’s like to work on Lake Michigan in the middle of the winter, the middle of the summer, and every time in between. And in the wake of the several released videos of Chicago police-involved shooting deaths of African Americans after the Laquan McDonald video, some educators have been tasked with altering their daily lesson plans for frank discussions about police brutality. Walter Taylor, a professional development facilitator for the Chicago Teachers Union’s Quest Center, talks about “Teaching About Laquan McDonald.” Plus, singer and musician Noura Mint Seymali from Mauritania is considered one of the best female artists in North Africa. She joins us in the studio.
