On Friday's show: A storm front is bringing some much-needed rain to our region. We discuss the climate outlook for August with Eric Berger of Space City Weather.
Also this hour: Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Nikole Hannah-Jones discusses The 1619 Project, which aims to bring the stories and contributions of enslaved Black people to the forefront of American history. She's edited a collection of essays, stories, and poetry by the same name. And she's speaking at an event with the Progressive Forum on Aug. 24.
Then, as students around the area go back to school, we discuss some education-related topics in the The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly of the week.
And Houston author Derryl Bohanna talks about his series of children’s books aimed at teaching kids -- especially children of color -- about financial literacy. We hear an excerpt from an hour-long conversation from this week's edition of I See U with Eddie Robinson.
