In hour one of Here & Now's April 23, 2018 full broadcast, we get the latest on a shooting early Sunday morning at a Waffle House restaurant in Tennessee that killed four people. Also, we visit the New York Historical Society to learn about a unique civics class there that uses art to teach immigrants the American history they need to know to pass their citizenship test. And the new album "Black Cowboys" is more than just a collection of songs from the Wild West — the record sheds light on the prominent but often-overlooked role African-American pioneers played in westward expansion.
