: “Sense Of Place: Chicago”: Raina Douris hosts, with John Morrison’s Culture Corner and Encore: Mavis Staples with host Talia Schlanger

Curtis Mayfield helped make Chicago a music destination. And on a special Sense of Place edition of the World Cafe, Culture Corner correspondent John Morrison will dive into the soul and R&B luminary’s influence – From The Impressions, to his solo career, to his work moonlighting as a producer and songwriter for others. Plus, we take a dip into the World Cafe archives for a 2019 conversation with Chicago’s own Mavis Staples.
