Five decades after Marvin Gaye released "What's Going On," we're still into it. Cultural critic Nelson George discusses how themes from the album reflect some of the most significant challenges and divisions we face as a society today. Also, after the winter storm in Texas, the number of those who died because of hypothermia or carbon monoxide poisoning is still being counted. Attorney Larry Taylor, who is representing the families of Gilbert Rivera and Doyle Austin in wrongful death lawsuits against ERCOT and CenterPoint Energy, joins us. That and more, in hour one of Here & Now's March 1, 2021, full broadcast. You can find more at hereandnow.org — and follow us on Twitter, Instagram or join the conversation on Facebook.
