Thursday on Lake Effect: Artist Election Activism, COVID-19 Journal Project, Anti-Vaping Activism

Thursday on Lake Effect

We hear from several artists who are calling last month’s in-person primary election a “Crime Against Humanity.” Then, a new journaling project from the Wisconsin Historical Society seeks to show how everyday people are experiencing this pandemic. An anti-vaping advocate shares his experience with addiction. Plus, an essayist compares the coronavirus pandemic to experiences during the Great Depression.

  • Simone Munson, Wisconsin Historical Society Librarian Archives Collection Development Coordinator
  • Luka Kinard, student and anti-vaping advocate; Nia Kamara, student and co-founder of FACT at Shorewood High School
  • Aleta Chossek, essayist
