A new report titled "Missing in Action" from the local think tank Policy Bridge says it's time to foster a new generation of black leaders, something the old guard hasn't done as it has held on to power. "Cleveland and other urban core communities," the report concludes,"cannot afford to lose another generation of leaders with the skills and perspectives to offer new solutions to old problems." We'll talk with Policy Bridge Board Chair Randell McShepard, and Executive Director Gregory Brown. First, we'll meet the "sit down" dancers, performers in wheelchairs, who are part of the Dance USA conference in Cleveland this week. And our final course today: A conversation with acclaimed Cleveland chef Michael Symon.
