Tonight's show featured Shawn Newell, a Cottonwood Heights City Councilman, vice president of the Salt Lake Branch of the NAACP, Utah System of Higher Education board member, co-chair of the Utah Black Round Table, and a member of KRCL's Community Advisory Board. Newell talks with RadioACTive's Lara Jones about his journey from Southern California to life as a community integrator in Utah — a place he thought he'd never stay after a college football career at the UoU and then a short stint with the NFL's Chicago Bears.
