Wednesday on Lake Effect: International Human Rights, 'Qualified' Documentary, 'Rebel Poet'

Wednesday on Lake Effect

We speak with international human rights lawyer Payam Akhavan, who says we place far too much faith in politics and not enough on our own choices. Then, we learn about Janet Guthrie, the first woman to qualify for the Indianapolis 500 - and the documentary about her career. Plus, poet Louis Clark talks about his experience growing up on Wisconsin's Oneida Reservation, and his collection of poems, Rebel Poet: More Stories from a 21st Century Indian.


  • Payam Akhavan, international human rights lawyer
  • Jenna Ricker, director, Qualified
  • Louis Clark III (Two Shoes), writer, Rebel Poet: More Stories from a 21st Century Indian
