Thursday on Lake Effect: Rise In Antisemitism, SHEroes, Teacher Diversity, Milwaukee Music Roundup

Thursday on Lake Effect:

A new report finds a 55-percent increase in antisemitic incidents around the state. We’ll break down the findings. Then, we learn about some local “SHEroes,” through a project inspired by the play, Eclipsed, at the Milwaukee Rep. New data finds many children of color in Wisconsin go to schools with no teachers who look like them. Plus, we listen to some new, local music with Milwaukee Record’s Matt Wild.
