The new podcast Somebody documents Shapearl Wells’s quest to find out what happened to Courtney Copeland, her 22-year-old son who wound up with a bullet in his back outside a Chicago police station in 2016 and died soon after.

On Thursday, April 30 at 4 p.m. ET, Topic Studios, The Intercept, and Chicago-based journalism nonprofit Invisible Institute will present a live conversation and listening session focused on Shapearl’s experiences confronting Chicago Police and challenging the city’s long-standing racial disparities. The event will be hosted by Intercept co-founding editor Jeremy Scahill and feature Somebody co-hosts Shapearl and Alison Flowers, a journalist at the Invisible Institute.
