Teenagers are sometimes held in solitary confinement for far too long .. while awaiting adult charges in the Baltimore City Detention Center. That's according to a scathing new review by the US Justice Department. We talk about it with Kara Aanenson, a juvenile-justice advocate with the non-profit Just Kids Partnership.

Then, how does the media shape what we think of Islam? Tom Hall speaks with a Muslim activist and an Al Jazeera America host about how Muslims are portrayed in the media.

Plus, theater critic J. Wynn Rousuck reviews "After the Revolution,", playwright Amy Herzog's study of a family propelled by Marxist politics, now up at Center Stage.
