On Friday’s Houston Matters: News 88.7's Immigration Reporter, Elizabeth Trovall, is reporting live from the border. She tells us about a memorial for Oscar Alberto Martinez and his 2-year-old daughter, Angie Valeria Martinez, who both drowned earlier this week trying to cross the Rio Grande into the United States.

And, Jacob Carpenter, K-12 Education Reporter for The Houston Chronicle, joins us to talk about the HISD board passing a budget at last night's meeting.

Also this hour: Today is the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall riots which eventually led to the modern LGBTQ rights movement. We learn about Houston’s LGBTQ organization The Dianas, known nationally as one of the oldest continuously running gay organizations in the country.

Then, our rotating panel of "non-experts" breaks down The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly of the week's news.

Plus: Houston Public Media’s ‘Unwrap Your Candies Now,’ co-host Catherine Lu talks with members of The Apollo Chamber Players about its concert that celebrates the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 moon landing.
