A recent report from Crain’s Chicago Business finds that benefits from Chicago’s West Side Walmart fell short for minority contractors.  Chicago Inspector General Joe Ferguson talks about the minority and women-owned business enterprise program in the city. And to commemorate the 150th anniversary of the beginning of the Civil War, Eight Forty-Eight hears from author Mary Pat Kelly about the role the Chicago Irish played in the battles that followed.
