Thursday on Lake Effect: State Supreme Court Race, Coronavirus Racism, 'This is Milwaukee' Project

Thursday on Lake Effect

We hear from the State Supreme Court candidates hoping to be elected to a ten-year term in Tuesday’s election. And as cases of the coronavirus continue to spread across the globe, so do instances of racism against Asian people. A new art project explores questions about democracy and citizenship through photos of and, conversations with, Milwaukeeans. Plus, we learn the origins of the bedside Bible in hotels.
