Today:   We bring back two conversations with I.U. Northwest professors on the books they wrote or had a big hand in writing,  We begin with history professor emeritus James Lane who,  along with co-author Ronald Cohen, put together the latest edition of “Gary – A Pictorial History.”  Professor Lane says the latest book includes events in the Steel City into the 21st Century.  Then, a revisited conversation with Indiana University Northwest sociology professor Jack Bloom about "Class, Race and the Civil Rights Movement," a book he wrote and was published more than 30 years ago and is still relevant today -- so much so, that he added some new material for the second edition -- now in print.   NFIB Indiana director Barbara Quandt also joins us with an update on efforts by Indiana small businesses to recover more quickly from the COVID-19 pandemic.
