After almost 40 years in prison, Debbie Africa, a member of the radical political group MOVE convicted of killing a police officer in 1978, has been released.  Trenton-born signer, actress, and music ambassador for the city Sarah Dash reacts to this weekend’s shooting at an arts festival, and on how the community will rebound.  The Pennsylvania Human Relations Commission is set to convene hearings Thursday regarding the case of five black women who allege racial and gender bias against a York County golf club.  Later this month, the Pennsylvania Attorney General is expected to release findings from a two-year grand jury investigation into widespread sexual abuse and cover-up within six Roman Catholic dioceses across the state.  We look at a push in the state capitol to give more legal rights to child sex-abuse victims.  Two pediatricians at the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia have started a podcast for Latino families.  And we talk with retiring Only a Game Host Bill Littlefield.
