In this episode of Out of the Archives, "Taking Care of Us: Community Care in Public Housing," the Museum's summer 2020 interns from Roosevelt University made selections from their favorite parts of the museum’s oral history collection, which collectively discuss the ways our communities shape us. The intern team included Skye Darke, Victoria Limon, River Toomer, and James Wilson.
A special thanks to the storytellers featured in this episode, including Dominica Abbot of the Jane Addams Homes, Phron Freeman of ABLA, JonTia Pegues of ABLA, and Kimberly Wellington of the Lathrop Homes. We'd also like to thank the members of the Museum's Oral History Corps and other oral historians who helped to gather these stories, including Francesco De Salvatore and Ashley Jefferson
