To The Best of Our Knowledge presents: Death (A Five-Part Series)
Part 1: The Reckoning
We'll chart the emerging "death movement" - from death cafes and death dinners to innovated schools that now talk openly about death with their students. A therapist/hospice worker will reflect on her own experience of talking to people who are dying. How can we prepare for our own death and for the deaths of our loved ones?
Tune in for part 1 of Death, coming up Saturday, March 7th at 3pm, on 90.5 FM WCBE Columbus.

In March 2014, one study found that black women diagnosed with breast cancer are, on average, 40 percent more likely to die than their white counterparts. With that dire statistic in mind, The Takeaway decided to look behind the numbers and hear from a range of African-American women diagnosed with the disease.
