Chicago, North Lawndale, part 1: Tears Watering Flowers
Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. lived in North Lawndale on Chicagoâ€™s West Side in 1966, and he galvanized the neighborhood in a campaign against redlining and housing discrimination.Â Two years later, he was assassinated. In the wake of his death, riots erupted in North Lawndale. Local industries abandoned the neighborhood, population plummeted, unemployment ballooned, and today the area is still trying to rebuild from the ashes of â€˜68.Â In this episode, we meet elders who remember the turmoil of that era, and we hear from a younger generation thatâ€™s seeking to breathe new life into North Lawndale. Special thanks to Chicago field producer Bashirah Mack and WBEZ for helping to make this episode happen.
