Urban Renewal Or Urban Removal?
Chicago Grassroots Curriculum Taskforce (CGCT), 2012 - Chicago Metropolitan Area (Ill.) - 197 pages
In Urban Renewal or Urban Removal? learners will engage the more troubling side of urban growth, development and gentrification to find out that people have confronted and resisted land / housing inequities and displacement since the beginnings of Chicago. In presenting a grassroots look at Chicago’s land grabs and the struggle for home and community, the voices and writings of affected residents are valued most. The contributing authors, including public school students and over 55 folks in all, reside in the communities themselves. You’ll see Chicago’s history through their eyes, feel their pains of displacement, and witness their courageous struggles for housing rights and community justice. It is a story more real today than ever before as Chicago continues to “gentrify” while residents continue to be displaced. What will become of Chicago? Who will live here? What can be done to keep our city affordable for working and lower-income people?
