The South Side: A Portrait of Chicago and American Segregation
by Natalie Y. Moore
Good Reads Review
Mayors Richard M. Daley and Rahm Emanuel have touted and promoted Chicago as a "world class city." The skyscrapers kissing the clouds, the billion-dollar Millennium Park, Michelin-rated restaurants, pristine lake views, fabulous shopping, vibrant theater scene, downtown flower beds and stellar architecture tell one story. Yet, swept under the rug is the stench of segregation that compromises Chicago. The Manhattan Institute dubs Chicago as one of the most segregated big cities in the country. Though other cities - including Cleveland, Los Angeles, and Baltimore - can fight over that mantle, it's clear that segregation defines Chicago. And unlike many other major U.S. cities, no one race dominates. Chicago is divided equally into black, white, and Latino, each group clustered in their various turfs.
In this intelligent and highly important narrative, Chicago-native Natalie Moore shines a light on contemporary segregation on the South Side of Chicago through reported essays, showing the life of these communities through the stories of people who live in them. The South Side shows the important impact of Chicago's historic segregation - and the ongoing policies that keep it that way.
The Social Action Committee and Green Sanctuary of the Beverly Unitarian Church strongly condemn the racist acts of vandalism recently found on several buildings in the neighborhood, including on the property of a fellow spiritual association. Beverly is a welcoming community and will not tolerate overt expressions of hate or racism.
SATURDAY, February 18, 2017 9 am UNTIL 1 pm Mark your calendar and get ready to bundle up and head over to the Beverly Unitarian Church. This annual event is such a win win. It gives us an opportunity to buy sustainably raised food while supporting our farmers in the winter months.
Invite friends to join you for a delightful mid-winter, Saturday morning shopping experience. The castle will be filled with a wide selection of locally grown organic vegetables, apples, herbs and mushrooms. You'll find tasty soups, cheeses, veggie burgers and delicious pestos to enhance your winter time meals. And let's not forget about dessert! Baked goods, cheesecakes and ice cream are a few of your choices. All this and… MUSIC by Anna Stange whose beautifully mellow voice will cause you to think there's an angel singing in the castle.
