Tuesday on Lake Effect:

We'll hear about some of the people and organizations that are working to improve race relations and inequality in Milwaukee. Later, the United Way undertakes a blitz to improve reading among Milwaukee and Waukesha-area kids. Plus, a surprising story on the differences between black and white funeral homes in the city. And the last voyage of the Lusitania had some tragic surprises of its own.
