In this episode of Out of the Archives, "We’re Connected to Everybody: Connecting Stories, Connecting Dots," narrators share stories of quarter parties that were organized in the Henry Horner Homes to help residents pay for their rent, finding the good in a community when you’re in a difficult time, and a family’s first television set at the Lathrop Homes.
A special thanks to the storytellers from this episode, including Harrold Brown of the Lathrop Homes, Sunny Fischer of the Eastchester Projects, Dr. Cranston Knight of the Henry Horner Homes, Gertrude Mendoza from the Cabrini-Green Homes, Loomis Courts and the Lathrop Homes, and John Pettiford of the Henry Horner Homes. 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, Ashley Jefferson, Shakira Johnson, Alexis Judeh, and Maria Moon.
The stories span from 1943 to 1996.
