Monday 5/6/24: traffic deaths report, student protests & politics, Bay View massacre, 72-year-old UWM graduate

Today on Lake Effect, we look at a new report that finds traffic deaths have gone up in Milwaukee County, while decreasing in other parts of the state. Capitol Notes explores the political implications of the student protests. We learn about the 1886 Bay View Massacre. Plus, meet a woman who started college in 1969, but never finished – and now 55 years later is graduating from UWM.
