Feedback form is now closed.
The Bronzeville community on the South Side of Chicago has undergone a transformation that has totally erased the presence of the once large and thriving Ida B. Wells Housing development that was its center for nearly 50 years. All that remains of the community are tales of violence and poverty. This poster will present a survey of archival materials found throughout various Chicago area archives that chronicle the everyday lives, families, and experiences of the residents of this now missing community.
