Ellie 2.0 Radio – May 7, 2022

A Live Show! We begin with a May 2022 Atlantic Magazine article by Ko Bragg titled, “Tour Guides to a Tragedy,” which details how the town of Philadelphia MS refuses to acknowledge one of the most horrific crimes of the Civil Rights movement—the 1964 murder of civil rights workers Michael Schwerner, Andrew Goodman, and James Chaney at the hands of Klu Klux Klan members—which was enabled by a Philadelphia (and Klan member) police officer. I then pivot to discussing the implications for LGBTQ people if the Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization case (an advance draft was leaked this week) actually overturns Roe v. Wade. From there, I talk about the huge number of MN school board members who are resigning due to parental harassment. Lastly, I share about how I reacted to a difficult conversation with a friend.
