Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library and Museum

June 24, 2019 - The 21st Show

Lincoln Bible; Quincy Families Still Waiting; Household Hazardous Waste; Who’s Moving To Chicago

The Lincoln Museum in Springfield now has a Bible that belonged to the former president. Plus, a year and a half ago, WBEZ reported on Legionnaires’ outbreaks at the Quincy Veterans’ Home. Today, the families who lost loved ones are still waiting for justice. And, as we think about our declining population overall, we’ll talk about who’s actually coming to Illinois. Plus, McLean County will be hosting household hazardous waste collections.

The event allows readers to ‘borrow’ real people from different backgrounds as ‘books’ to chat about experiences ranging from violence and prejudice to stereotyping.

Parkland College To Host ‘Human Library’ Event

The Human Library event is designed to make Parkland College a more inclusive and diverse environment, where people are not judged as one might judge a book by its cover. Instead, the real stories of these human books are meant to challenge stereotypes and prejudices through dialogue.
