Reveal Presents: The View from Room 205
Reveal

In 2014, WBEZ Chicago reporter Linda Lutton followed a class of fourth-graders at William Penn Elementary School on Chicago’s West Side. She wanted to explore a big idea that’s at the heart of the American dream: Can public schools be the great equalizer in society, giving everyone a chance to succeed, no matter where they come from or how much money their families have? Lutton told the story in a Peabody Award-nominated show, “The View from Room 205.” This week, Reveal presents a condensed version of that documentary. Don’t miss the next big story.

More to the Story: Redlining, Wildfires and Trump's Mansion
Reveal

Reveal digs deep – and gets results. This week’s episode shines a light on three recent investigations that made a splash. By mining data from 31 million records, we discover a pattern of mortgage loan denials to applicants of color in more than 60 U.S. metropolitan areas. Our story leads to investigations and demands for accountability at the federal, state and city levels. While many people of color have trouble getting mortgages, we investigate one high-end property that didn’t even need one. Our investigation shows the bizarre way that Donald Trump ended up with a $10 million Beverly Hills mansion. Next, we revisit our investigation with our partners at KQED into California’s deadliest wildfires to determine what’s being done to ensure that emergency response failures are not repeated as the next wildfire season approaches.

Trumping Hate
Reveal

There’s been a lot of conversation about whether Donald Trump has inspired a new wave of hate in America. Reveal reporter Will Carless set out to understand the president’s role in hundreds of hate incidents across the country, with help from the Documenting Hate project led by ProPublica. He found a striking pattern that extended across races, religions and sexual orientation. We also examine what’s going on inside the government agency that’s supposed to be fighting discrimination, the Justice Department’s Civil Rights Division. And we ask what it takes for bystanders in hate speech incidents to become allies. Don’t miss the next big story. Get the Weekly Reveal newsletter at revealnews.org/newsletter.

Full of Lead: How Bullets are Poisoning Eagles
Reveal

Lead – the toxic metal used for years in paint, plumbing, mining and more – still poisons people in all kinds of ways. Lead also kills wildlife when animals scavenge carcasses shot with lead bullets and left behind by hunters. Eagles and condors are not the hunters’ intended targets, but they’re dying from bullet dust. The Obama administration tried to phase out all lead ammunition on certain federal lands right before leaving office. But President Donald Trump’s interior secretary, Ryan Zinke, overturned that order his first day on the job. Reveal follows a bullet’s journey in the wilds of Wyoming. -- Head over to revealnews.org for more of our reporting. Follow us on Facebook at fb.com/ThisIsReveal and on Twitter @reveal.

The kids aren't all right
Reveal

Federal law requires colleges and universities to track and disclose sexual assaults on campus. It’s different for kindergarten through 12th grade, where there are no similar requirements for cases involving assaults between students. In elementary, middle and high schools across the U.S., the Associated Press found a shocking level of sexual violence among students. The AP also uncovered a new dimension to the problem – on U.S. military bases. On this episode of Reveal, we delve into results from the AP’s continuing investigation. -- Head over to revealnews.org for more of our reporting.

Wildfires raged across Northern California in October, burning through the state’s famed Napa and Sonoma wine regions.

Scores awoke to flames at their doors, and 44 people were killed in the deadliest fire event in state history.
