Tuesday on Lake Effect: Protest Organizers, Books on Racism, School Integration Study

Jun 23, 2020

Tuesday on Lake Effect:

We hear from some of the organizers of the ongoing protests in Milwaukee and why they plan to keep marching. Then, the Milwaukee Public Library gives us a list of book recommendations for adults and kids to learn more about racism. Plus, we look at research that shows that even though parents say they want diverse schools, they often don’t make it a priority.

Guests:

  • Khalil Coleman, protest organizer; Mariah Smith, protest organizer; Destiny Monae, protest organizer
  • Hermoine Bell-Henderson, coordinator of business, technology, and periodicals at the Milwaukee Public Library
  • Richard Weissbourd, director of ‘Making Caring Common’ project at Harvard’s Graduate School of Education; Eric Torres, PhD student at Harvard’s Graduate School of Education
