On Second Thought For Monday, October 22, 2018

Today we discussed the importance of community input in health issues and art museums.

We spoke with Breana Lipscomb, the U.S. maternal health campaign manager for The Center for Reproductive Rights. The organization works to improve health outcomes for women. We also spoke with Wanda Irving, a consultant and mediator, whose daughter died after giving birth in 2017.

We also spoke to Kevin W. Tucker, chief curator at the High Museum of Art about the re-installation and the museum's efforts to be representative, accessible and inclusive to the community. Floyd Hall, ArtsATL contributor, joined the conversation and discussed similar efforts to embrace diversity through the arts around Atlanta.

 


Finally, we heard from author Lauren Groff. Her story collection "Florida" was nominated for a National Book Award this year.
