This week on Sound Ideas we recap significant stories of the year including the dialog on race relations. Brandon Bell was part of the series Living Black in Bloomington Normal. You'll also hear from the first tenured African American professor at Lincoln College, a student who had the uncomfortable epiphany that most hate crimes are against blacks when she was doing research on hate. And an activist who says he's been exposed to bias and micro aggressions since a young age.
