Nov 4, 2021


Today:   Valparaiso University assistant accounting professor Anton Lewis is on "Regionally Speaking" to talk about the courses he teaches in the College of Business and how they relate to his book "Counting Black and White Beans: Critical Race Theory in Accounting." This is the first of monthly conversations with professor Lewis, an expert on diversity, equity and inclusion in business.  We bring back our conversation with journalist-historian-playwright Jeff Biggers on "Kaminski's Lot," his play that's being performed at Indiana University Northwest.  Biggers is IUN's Climate Narrative Playwright-in-Residence.  "Family Promise of Porter County" board president Robin Wilkening talks about the organization and its work to combat family homelessness, and Beth Murphy with the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs has the latest on expanded benefits for disability claims for Gulf War-era veterans. The claims are related to conditions that veterans may have suffered, from toxic exposures while on duty in several campaigns overseas.
