As streets and sidewalks slowly, slowly find their way back to black, we’ll check with the Emergency Operations Center in Baltimore for an update on plans to clear the streets.  What city residents and businesses can expect on Day 2 of the big dig. 

Then, Justin Fenton of the Baltimore Sun and attorney Edward Smith walk us through last week’s important developments in the trials of the officers accused in the death of Freddie Gray.

And the Rev. Dr. Robert Franklin, the President Emeritus of Morehouse College in Atlanta, joins me to talk about how Christians imagine justice.

Plus, Ayaan Hirsi Ali -- who has been identified by the Southern Poverty Law Center as an anti-Muslim extremist -- is scheduled to appear on the Baltimore Speakers Series tomorrow night.  WYPR’s Sheilah Kast  talks with the controversial activist and author. 

And Theater Critic J. Wynn Rousuck reviews the Vagabond Players' production of  Our Town.
