Evenings with an Author: Natalie Moore, The South Side: A Portrait of Chicago and American Segregation
March 27 @ 19 h 30 min - 21 h 00 min
Natalie Moore presents her book The South Side: A Portrait of Chicago and American Segregation, in which she explores the contemporary segregated reality in the third most-populated American city. The Chicago Reader, reviewing the book, writers, “The South Side is a powerful political document, but the book also constitutes its own argument, unspoken but unmistakable, for how badly the media needs to represent a diverse array of perspectives and backgrounds—as a matter of accuracy, empathy, and understanding.”
