Monday on Lake Effect:

A new book illustrates the face of the civil rights movement in the north – including in Milwaukee. Then a local researcher offers some perspective on the discovery of a new gene linked to the disease ALS. Plus we explore ways to encourage sharing our family history and learn more about Mars to celebrate Red Planet Day.
