"They Can't Kill Us All," Cleveland Community Police Commission and 75th Anniversary of Pearl Harbor
Shaker Heights native and Pulitzer Prize-winning reporter Wesley Lowery spent more than a year covering the aftermath of police shootings in Ferguson, Cleveland and other U.S. cities. On The Sound of Ideas, Lowery joins us to discuss his new book, "They Can't Kill Us All: Ferguson, Baltimore, and a new Era in America's Racial Justice Movement." Then, an update on how the past year of local efforts to reform police practices have been going. And, 75 years after Pearl Harbor, we'll learn more about the attack's highest ranking casualty, Admiral Isaac Kidd. He's a Cleveland native.
