Sculptures representing charred chimneys rising from the smoldering rubble of burned-out buildings make up the Centennial memorial of the 1908 Race Riot entitled, "Acts of Intolerance" by Preston Jackson, Wednesday March 22, 2023, in Springfield, Ill. The Illinois Prisoner Review Board is considering a request to posthumously pardon Joe James by advocates who contend he did not receive a fair trial before he was hanged for murdering a white man. It was the local sheriff's refusal to turn over to a white mob for lynching James and George Richardson that set off the two-day riot on Aug. 14. Richardson was accused the previous day of raping a white woman but was cleared when she later confessed she made up the assault. (AP Photo/John O'Connor)

This photo provided by Taylor Legal Team shows Rejon Taylor. Taylor hoped the election of Joe Biden, the first U.S. president to campaign on a pledge to end the death penalty, would mean a more sympathetic look at his claims that racial bias and other trial errors landed him on federal death row in Terre Haute, Ind. But two years on, Justice Department attorneys under Biden are fighting the Black man's efforts to reverse his 2008 death sentence for killing a white restaurateur as hard as they did under Donald Trump, who oversaw 13 executions in his presidency's final months.

Transgender-rights advocates gather near the Kentucky House chamber, Thursday, March 2, 2023, in Frankfort, Ky. Kentucky Gov. Andy Beshear’s veto of a bill aimed at transgender health care has put Kentucky in the middle of a national fight. But the consequences are more immediate in Kentucky. Its election this year offers an early test on the state-by-state assault on gender-affirming care for minors. The veto issued Friday set off competing messages likely to be repeated until the November election. (AP Photo/Bruce Schreiner, File)

Protesters rally at the Ohio Statehouse in support of abortion after the Supreme Court overturned Roe vs. Wade, June 24, 2022 in Columbus, Ohio. The Ohio Supreme Court agreed Tuesday, March 14, 2023, to review a county judge’s order that is blocking enforcement of the state's near-ban on abortions, and to consider whether the clinics challenging the law have legal standing to do so. In its split decision, the court, however, denied Republican Attorney General Dave Yost's request to launch its own review of the right to an abortion under the Ohio Constitution, leaving those arguments to play out in lower court.
