Christopher J. Murphey

The Fort Wayne Youtheatre has been educating, engaging and entertaining

audiences since 1934. This week on WBOI Presents, Director Christopher J. Murphy and a cast of Youtheatre’s talented young performers bring us tales of woe, or perhaps more accurately, tales of Poe. Our friends from Fort Wayne Youtheatre perform at the University of Saint Francis Music Technology Center for WYTR’s Hallloween Tales.

WIKICOMMONS

The subject of this show is not intended for all listeners. In September, a nurse who worked at an immigration detention center filed a whistleblower complaint alleging, among other things, that immigrant women received questionable hysterectomies. The focus of our episode this week is forced sterilizations, the history of the eugenics movement, and human rights abuses.

BARBARA BELLI DE OLIVEIRA

This week, we are bringing you a talk from CreativeMornings’ monthly breakfast series. We’ll hear from Kyle Steury on the topic of Spectrum.

AVOW

This week, we are once again hearing from our friends from Advancing Voices Of Women or AVOW, for a civil conversation about eviction. According to Eviction Lab, Fort Wayne ranked thirteenth in the nation for evictions and that was before the COVID-19 pandemic. With the economic fallout that has come with the coronavirus, the United States faces an eviction and homelessness crisis. We’ll learn about the laws that govern landlord and tenant actions. AVOW assembled a panel for a conversation outside at Barr Street Market.

Until this summer, it seemed unlikely that anything would overtake the coronavirus as the top story of any given day, week, or month. Issues of racial justice and discussions about the best ways to address police brutality remain in the conversation around the world and right here in northeast Indiana. AVOW assembled a panel for a nearly two hour conversation outside at Barr Street Market.

Protests in the wake of the death of George Floyd in police custody in Minneapolis have brought attention to the spending priorities of municipalities, especially when it comes to police departments. What are the funding sources for Fort Wayne? What are police officers asked to do and why? What happens when funds are reprioritized?

 

Funding Public Safety is a discussion led by Andy Downs, Director of the Mike Downs Center for Indiana Politics. These conversations were recorded via Zoom.

Panelists include:
