New: Local governments have made efforts to revive commerce in neglected Black neighborhoods around the country. It hasn’t always worked. But Chicago can learn from their experiences. propub.li/38NQLwe

Welcome to Coffeyville, Kansas, where the judge has no law degree, debt collectors get a cut of the bail, and Americans are watching their lives — and liberty — disappear in the pursuit of medical debt collection.

New: Michigan’s juvenile justice system is archaic. Counties act with little oversight, and the state keeps such poor data it doesn’t know how many juveniles it has in custody or what happens to them once they’re in the system. propub.li/3pbPfL5

New: Wallace’s Catfish Corner, a fish and soul food restaurant on Chicago’s West Side, was a neighborhood staple. Now the building is boarded-up and unused. Its messy history shows the challenges of rebuilding an area devastated by disinvestment. propub.li/389WMTG

I wanted to give a shout out to the exceptional artists who put a lot of love and care into the illustrations and images that accompanied our story today on child labor in American factories. First, Christie Tirado, who made this beautiful print for the story.

By day, these teenagers attend a wealthy suburban Chicago high school. Then, they go work the overnight shift at local factories.

The jobs are almost always illegal and sometimes unsafe. The schedule is brutal. Why no one wants to do anything about it.

Here is their story.

New: During the day, immigrant teenagers attend high school. At night, they work in factories to pay debts to smugglers and send money to family. The authorities aren’t surprised by child labor. They’re also not doing much about it. propub.li/3kRrHZu

A half-century after Chicago’s uprisings in 1968, a once-thriving retail strip in East Garfield Park still suffers from broken promises, bad policy and neglect. propub.li/3kxCqYB
