Bruce Orenstein and Chris Jenkins interviewed on TV by WTTW PBS Chicago

Cook Center Faculty Affiliate Bruce Orenstein was interviewed on Chicago Tonight, an evening program produced by WTTW, Chicago’s PBS Station. Bruce Orenstein is the Creator and Director of the four-part documentary series titled “Shame of Chicago, Shame of the Nation”. He was interviewed alongside series producer Chris Jenkins.

Shame of Chicago, Shame of the Nation lays bare the story of how Chicago devised the nation’s most sweeping system of racially segregated housing—and how it diminished the lives of generations of Black families, creating the vast racial wealth gap that persists to this day.

Episode 1 of the series, “The Color Tax” is now available to stream here or the PBS app.
