Spurlock Museum Exhibit

February 25, 2019 - The 21st Show

Indian Exhibit At Spurlock Museum; Gun Permit Revocations; Diversity In Academic Publishing; Oscars

On the 21st: The Spurlock museum is featuring stories of the Indian diaspora with objects submitted by local residents. We hear what that exhibit says about the many stories of Indians right here in Illinois. Plus, when your gun permit gets revoked, the police send you a letter demanding that you turn in your firearm. But most of the time, there’s no follow-up and it has allowed thousands of people to keep their weapons, including, the gunman in last Friday’s Aurora shooting. And, a new grant funds diversity fellowships which calls for more representation in academic publishing. Plus, we talk about last night's Oscars.
