When South Looper and law school prof Lorraine Schmall heard that Liberian Journalist/activist Mae Azango was visiting New York and Toronto this month, she started emailing a small group of movers and shakers to see if anyone could help bring her to Chicago, as well. "Mae has earned some fame for her fearless reporting about female genital mutilation in West Africa," Lorraine told her contacts, adding that although Azango had been feted in several cities in the US, she'd never been hosted by anyone in Chicago.
