A new performance revisits the largest slave rebellion in U.S. history. In 1811, more than 200 enslaved men and women in present-day Louisiana launched an uprising in St. John the Baptist Parish. It was the largest insurgency of enslaved people in U.S. history, though the revolt lasted only a few days before the poorly armed rebels were crushed by a militia and U.S. troops. But now, more than two centuries later, their story is living on.

Minneapolis was the first large city to eliminate decades-old rules. With many big U.S. cities facing housing shortages, some are now considering changing decades-old zoning laws that protect districts with only single-family homes. Last year, Minneapolis, Minnesota, became the first large city to completely eliminate single-family zoning, as part of a larger plan to address its housing shortfall. NewsHour Weekend's Megan Thompson reports.

Most of the food crops we eat are "annuals," plants that need to be replanted every year, which has a host of environmental consequences. But scientists in Kansas and Minnesota are developing a new perennial grain, similar to wheat, called "Kernza" that may better protect soil and water, and even trap greenhouse gases. Some big food producers are starting to get on board with Kernza, too. NewsHour Weekend's Megan Thompson reports on the latest in our "Future of Food" series with support from the Pulitzer Center.
