In this episode of Out of the Archives, "Hidden History America," storytellers analyze the state of public housing in New York City, moving out of public housing into Chicago’s Lakeview neighborhood, and the tireless efforts of parents working nights to give their children a better life.
A special thanks to the storytellers from this episode, including Roger Prosise of the Cabrini-Green Homes, Robert Scott of CHA Senior North, Daphany Rose Sanchez of Cooper Park, Charlene Purnell from the Lathrop Homes, Blanche Winston of the ABLA Homes, and Daniel Nicholson of Stateway Gardens. We'd also like to thank the members of the Museum's Oral History Corps and other oral historians who recorded these stories, including Shirley Alfaro, Elena Bulgarella, Shakira Johnson, and Maria Moon.
The stories span from 1954 to the present day.
