Tuesday, May 17, 2022 - Last week, the Interior Department issued a report detailing the brutal history involving federal Indian boarding schools. We take the occasion to share an address by Denise Lajimodiere, author of the book “Stringing Rosaries, the History, the Unforgivable, and the Healing of North American Indian Boarding School Survivors.” She spoke last November at Concordia College. Alicia Hegland Thorpe has prepared an excerpt of that address. You can see the entire presentation here. ~~~ Ed Yong, a writer for The Atlantic, won a Pulitzer Prize for Explanatory Reporting for his coverage of the COVID-19 pandemic. He says the threat of future pandemics requires society to aggressively face and fix racial, economic and health disparities. He visits with Mark Masselli and Margaret Flinter in this excerpt from the Conversations on Health Care podcast.
