Chicago neighborhoods ‘Report Back'

Violence and crime are issues that affect many Chicago neighborhoods, but what happens when instead of looking to public officials for guidance on how to combat these issues, community members and journalists come together to engage neighborhoods directly? A range of video, radio, print and even comic journalism projects emerge. The Illinois Humanities Council's “Reporting Back: Perspectives on Violence in Chicago Communities” series will spend three months producing multimedia stories to get communities thinking about the effect these issues have on their residents. Joining us fresh from Reporting Back's first public conversation held Wednesday night in Bronzeville is IHC's Simon Nyi and Humboldt Park team members Darryl Holliday and Brian Herrera.
