Thursday on Lake Effect: Closing the Racial Wealth Gap, Conflict Resolution, Mental Side of Tennis

Thursday on Lake Effect:

Our Real Talk segment dismisses notions of a post-racial America and offers solutions to closing the racial wealth gap. Then, a method of conflict resolution in use in law enforcement explains its basic premise. Later, a Milwaukee mother remembers her late son in a book that chronicles her journey through grief. And we learn why one local tennis school thinks the mental part of the game is as important as the backhand.
