Event Description

NPR’s award winning podcast Embedded comes to Chicago with an interactive, live presentation. Host Kelly McEvers will present the story of how a police officer shot and killed Jonathan Ferrell, an unarmed black man, in Charlotte, North Carolina. The presentation puts the audience at the center of the story and shows that videos of these shootings can sometimes complicate cases. Afterwards, she’ll host a discussion about the shooting death of Laquan McDonald and how that case will impact future cases.
