On Wednesday’s Houston Matters: Harris County plans to spend $30 million to bring in hundreds of additional nurses to the Houston area to help the region's strained hospital system. We discuss that and other news related to COVID-19 with Doug Lawson, the CEO of St. Luke's Health.

Also this hour: We discuss the latest news in our weekly political roundup.

Then, we revisit a conversation from 2018 about how Southern Blacks fared here in Texas during Reconstruction and under Jim Crow.
