Triad News Roundup: Greensboro Redistricting Decision, Body Camera Law Tested: Another violent arrest by police in Greensboro is testing North Carolina's 2016 law on the release of police body camera footage. The mother of fifteen-year-old Jose Charles says police choked her son without provocation at a fourth of July party, and she wants the public to see the police tape of the incident. Police charged Jose Charles with attacking an officer, among other crimes. Triad City Beat Editor Jordan Green explains how the Charles case is testing the body camera law, and the impacts of the law on public trust. Greensboro News & Record Court Reporter Danielle Battaglia break down a major ruling by a federal judge who has found the General Assembly’s Greensboro city council redistricting to be unconstitutional. Host Frank Stasio speaks with Green and Battaglia for a Triad news roundup, plus a sneak peak of news stories in the works.

Capturing America Through 'Sightlines': For more than 40 years, photographer Lucinda Devlin has captured unique scenes across the country. Her images are social commentaries on things like the death penalty and agribusiness. The exhibit "Lucinda Devlin: Sightlines" spans Devlin's career and features 83 of her photographs. Host Frank Stasio talks with Lucinda Devlin and Elaine Gustafson, exhibit curator, about the legacy of Devlin's work. "Lucinda Devlin: Sightlines," is on display at the Weatherspoon Art Museum at the University of North Carolina at Greensborothrough Sunday, April 23. 

Abigail Dowd’s Debut Album Draws From Irish Inspiration: After a career in city politics, Abigail Dowd needed a change. She packed up her grandfather’s guitar and traveled to Italy, Ireland and Maine to reconnect with herself and her music. The trip turned into an eight-year journey. The classically trained guitarist and singer has now come home to North Carolina to release her debut album “Don’t Wake Me.” Host Frank Stasio talks with Abigail Dowd about her album and continued work as a community organizer; Dowd performs live at the Triad Stage. Dowd will play shows in a number of North Carolina cities this month, including Winston-Salem, Cary and Greensboro.
