This edition: Race at Work, and On the CourtTweet
Original tape date: April 7, 2014.
First aired: April 9, 2014.
Up first, a a look at how police are using big data, twitter and mapping methods to predict crime - not quite "Minority Report" style but cutting edge nonetheless. With Brian, Joel Caplan from the Rutgers Center on Public Security, and Matthew Gerber from the Predictive Technology Lab at the University of Virginia.
Then, how to mention (or not) race at work. Progress is often described as colorblindness. But authors of a new book, "The Color Bind: Talking (and Not Talking) About Race at Work" advocate color cognizance. With us, the authors, Tamara Buckley, associate professor of counseling and psychology at Hunter College and Erica Gabrielle Foldy, co-director of the Research Center for Leadership in Action at New York University Wagner.
Next, the "start school later" movement gets a boost. In our public intellectual segment, where we look at new research with the power to change minds and public policy, a new study finds that schools that tried starting later in the day resulted in positive outcomes such as better grades and fewer car crashes. We are joined by Kyla Wahlstrom, director of the Center for Applied Research and Educational Improvement at the University of Minnesota. And, Glens Falls High School assistant principal Elizabeth Collins.
Finally, the Black Fives: the history of African American basketball teams in the early half of the 20th Century. Claude Johnson, historian and founder of the Black Fives Foundation gives a virtual tour with photographs from the Black Fives exhibition at the New York Historical Society.
