On Thursday’s Houston Matters: Local advocates are calling on Harris County judges to settle a bail reform lawsuit. The Greater Houston Coalition for Justice tells us about their campaign, and we consider the latest in the case with criminal justice professor Dr. Kevin Buckler from the University of Houston-Downtown.
Also this hour: We learn how children are affected when their parents are incarcerated. A new study looks to better quantify the effects and develop ways to prevent them.
Then, a historian examines how migration to Houston before World War II shaped the city. And we hear from a man who witnessed the 1947 Texas City disaster, the deadliest industrial accident in American history.
