Thursday’s Houston Matters: Clearing Up A COVID Test Backlog, And Grading Houston On Inclusivity (Sept. 24, 2020)

On Thursday’s show: Clearing up a backlog of COVID-19 tests, Houston falls behind in racial and economic equity, a look at the movie Antebellum by Houston’s Gerard Bush, and stories from the integration of Texas football.

On Thursday’s Houston Matters: How a new automated service is clearing up Harris County Public Health’s backlog of positive COVID-19 cases.

Also this hour: Houston is diverse, but is it inclusive? A new study from a D.C. think tank suggests...not so much. What findings from the Urban Institute suggest about racial and economic disparities in the Bayou City.

Then, in this month's installment of The Bigger Picture, we look at Antebellum, the new horror-thriller film starring Janelle Monae as a woman trapped on a slave plantation in the antebellum South. Gerard Bush, the film's director, is from Houston.

And with high school football starting this weekend and college football already underway for some schools, we revisit our conversation about the integration of football in Texas with Robert Jacobus, author of Black Man in the Huddle.
