Friday on Lake Effect: Malcolm Gladwell, Educating Children of Inmates, Headaches

Friday on Lake Effect:

Our Project Milwaukee series on the high rate of black male incarceration in Milwaukee continues with a conversation with Malcolm Gladwell about how the situation affects the broader community. Plus, a former prison warden works to ensure educational success for the children of current and former inmates – and enlists the help of the inmates themselves. We’ll find out why headaches aren’t just annoying, but a public health concern. The Milwaukee area’s School of Rock gets set for a British Invasion themed concert. And a tiny urban farm blooms in one Milwaukee pocket park – at least when it’s warm enough to grow anything.
