In this episode of Out of the Archives, "Black is Beautiful: Reflections on Arts, Culture, and Activism," current and former public housing residents share a range of stories that exemplify not only that Black Lives Matter, but are creative, full of joy, courageous, and essential.
The storytellers you will hear from include Mary Baggett of the Jane Addams Homes, Fred Cash of the Dearborn Home, Sequane Lawrence of the Robert Taylor Homes, Raymond McDonald of Cabrini-Green, Congressman Bobby Rush of the Hilliard Homes, Francine Washington of Stateway Gardens, and Bruce Wilkerson of the Ida B. Wells Homes.
The stories span from 1953 to the present day.
EDITORIAL CORRECTION: Mary Baggett has lived in the Jane Addams Rowhouses, not the Jane Addams Homes.
