Ellie 2.0 Radio -February 13, 2023

This week’s featured idealist is LeBron James, who just broke the NBA scoring
record. In August 2018, I shared about the “I Promise” school his family foundation helped to
create in LeBron’s hometown of Akron, Ohio. Today we revisit how that initiative is impacting
hundreds of students who might otherwise get lost in the educational system. The Big Interview
is an encore of my interview of Rachel Pilgrim, whose story about searching for the identities of
five black women who founded a black church in NY became the subject of a New York Times
article. In my C-Block I talk about a recent award and about how the options for where
transgender people can safely live in America are becoming fewer and fewer.
