400 Years of Inequity Summit Preview; Shondor Birns Book; Philanthropy Awards

Confronting racism and the societal structures that deny opportunities to people of color will be the subject of a national conversation held in Cleveland this week. We will preview "400 Years of Inequity: A Call to Action." The summit frames racism as a public health crisis. Later, who was Shondor Birns?  Our Arts & Culture team talks with the author of a new book on the Cleveland racketeer.  And making a difference in the lives of others lies at the heart of philanthropy.  We will meet one of the recipients to be honored by the Association of Fundraising Professionals of Greater Cleveland.
