On this encore edition of the 21st: We learn why the ACLU of Illinois is suing the state for providing poor medical care to inmates. We also discuss a film that's sparking conversations about race across Illinois and meet a University of Illinois team that's reaching out to local high school students to discuss the history of black music.
