Today:  A Region native and documentarian focused one of his programs on the old Lake County Jail in Crown Point.  Darren Zancan is back on "Regionally Speaking" to talk about his "History Alive" series episode with a local touch, and he offers some little-known facts about the old lockup.  Indiana Public Broadcasting reporter Ella Abbott has a report about what are called "sundown towns," where Blacks were told to stay out of some towns in the North after the sun went down.  She looks at the impact of those towns (a few of them in Indiana) on other communities -- decades later -- and how it ties in with the current civil unrest.
