Morning Shift: September 11, 2015

After more than two decades with no adult trauma center on Chicago’s south side, the University of Chicago hospital is teaming up with Sinai Health Systems to convert an emergency room at another hospital into a level 1 Trauma Unit. We talk with WBEZ South Side Bureau Reporter Natalie Moore about how this unfolded. We’ll also check in with an activist who’s not completely sold on the plan. Then, it’s the 100th birthday of a Chicago organization created to write and publish the history of black lives and culture. We’ll take a look at the past, present and future of the Association for the Study of African American Life and History. We discuss the double standard for women athletes regarding attitude and appearance. And we’ve got the roots reggae music of Los Angeles band The Expanders.
