You Didn’t See Nothin’ looks at media coverage of 1997 Chicago hate crime

When Lenard Clark was 13, he was brutally beaten by three white teenagers on the city’s South Side for being Black in a white neighborhood.

   

In a seven-part series, You Didn’t See Nothin revisits a 1997 hate crime in the Bridgeport neighborhood nearly 25 years later. The podcast takes a closer look at the rush toward racial healing after a violent racist attack and the way the mainstream media ignored key details in the investigation.

Reset hears analysis from the journalist who reported on the beating in the 1990s.
