WBEZ NPR Shame of Chicago Interview

Faculty Affiliate Bruce Orenstein was interviewed on Reset with Sasha-Ann Simons, WBEZ Chicago’s daily talk show in affiliation with NPR, to discuss his four-part documentary series Shame of Chicago, Shame of the Nation on May 7.

Shame of Chicago, Shame of the Nation lays bare the true stories behind how Chicago and its suburbs devised the nation’s most sweeping system of racially segregated communities and how these policies diminished the lives of generations of Black families, creating the vast racial wealth gap that persists to this day.

The full series can be streamed on PBS, WTTW: Chicago, VonTV, and accessed on the website.
