Seg. 1: Postpartum Depression Resources | Seg. 2: 'Remembering Emmett Till'

Segment 1: Where a new mother lives often affects her ability to find treatment

Postpartum depression affects women of all demographics, but those in rural areas are particularly unable to take advantage of certain treatment options. Kansas City medical professionals reviewed some of the resources available in the region and discussed the challenges of connecting those to the mothers who most need them.

Segment 2, beginning at 26:01: The business of remembering Emmett Till's murder in Mississippi

The 1955 lynching of Emmett Till in Money, Mississippi, could be considered a spark that lit the flame of the civil rights movement that followed. Turns out that decades later it also sparked a dubious tourism boom throughout in the region where he died.

Dave Tell will discuss his new book at 6:30 p.m. on Thursday, July 11, at the Kansas City Library's Plaza Branch, 4801 Main St., Kansas City, Missouri 64112. For more information, and to RSVP, go to KCLibrary.org.

When I host Up To Date each morning at 9 a.m., my aim is to engage the community in conversations about the Kansas City area’s challenges, hopes and opportunities. I try to ask the questions that listeners want answered about the day’s most pressing issues and provide a place for residents to engage directly with newsmakers. My email is steve@kcur.org.
The Kansas City region has long been a place where different ways of life collide. I tell the stories of people living and working where race, culture and ethnicity intersect. I examine racial equity and disparity, highlight the area's ethnic groups and communities of color, and invite all of Kansas City to explore meaningful ways to bond with and embrace cultures different from their own.
