On Wednesday’s Houston Matters: The U.S. Commerce Department announced (Monday, March 26) they will restore a question about citizenship to the 2020 census. Texas lawmakers and community activists are criticizing that decision. We talk with the former director of the Census Bureau, Steve Murdock on how the census data is used and what impact it will have on Texas.
Also this hour: We discuss the latest political stories with an eye for how they might affect Houston and Texas.
And, after the breach of trust from Facebook –the recent admission that Cambridge Analytica, a political data-mining firm, gained access to massive amounts of Facebook user data without permission– we talk to Houston Chronicle's Dwight Silverman about what may motivate some users to cut the social media’s site cord.
Plus: Choreographer Garrett Smith wants to re-examine the way gender is represented in dance with his piece, Imitations. He tells Houston Matters producer Michael Hagerty about the piece and what he hopes it changes about gender roles in dance.
