Jamiko Rose points to Uptown's Wilson Yard as a project that incited exchanges about race in the community.

Race relations can be a tough issue to address, especially for politicians during election season. Alden Loury and Jamiko Rose joined Eight Forty-Eight to discuss the racial challenges the next mayor of Chicago will inherit.

Loury is the publisher of the Chicago Reporter. He's been reporting on race and poverty for over a decade. And Jamiko Rose is the Executive Director of ONE, or the Organization fo the North East, which works with various groups on Chicago's Northeast Side.
