In today's episode, you'll hear the story of how a Black Tazewell County family filed a freedom suit in St. Louis, after they were kidnapped by gang of White men in 1827. And a three-piece band from Peoria explains how they developed their eclectic mix of punk rock, blues and grunge. Plus, on this week's episode of Out and About, PeoriaCon organizers Jason and Megan Johnston talk about Peoria's premiere pop culture fest.
