Voice of Witness’ new book, High Rise Stories: Voices from Chicago Public Housing, chronicles a collection of gripping first-person accounts from former residents of Chicago’s iconic public housing projects, describing stories of community, displacement and poverty in the wake of gentrification. Join its author for a discussion about life in the city’s now-demolished high-rises and learn about the hopes and struggles that still exist firmly at the heart of our national identity.
