Eight Forty-Eight's Richard Steele kicks off a week of encore specials featuring past stories and conversations from the show. Journalists Alden Loury and Sue Ontiveros join Steele for a conversation about the biggest stories involving race during 2011. They discuss the DREAM Act, how the media missed the mark in covering Flash Mobs and what calls for a "consensus" black candidate during February's Mayoral election meant as a political strategy. And, Steele looks back at the racial turmoil at Chicago's Rainbow Beach during the 1960s.
