Lake Effect Weekend: Dontre Hamilton, 'The Gray Rhino,' James Beard Awards, and Ex-Fabula

This weekend on Lake Effect:

It’s the second anniversary of the Dontre Hamilton shooting. WUWM’sLaToya Dennis talks with his mother and brother about what’s changed and what hasn’t. Then, when it comes to perceiving danger, you’ve heard of the black swan and the elephant in the room. Michele Wucker has another animal to add to the metaphor collection: the gray rhino. Plus with the James Beard Awards set for Monday, food contributor Kyle Cherek looks at the Wisconsin talent that has been represented in recent years. And we’ll have the latest episode of our storytelling series Ex Fabula.
