A Conversation About 'Integrating the Inner City'

WBEZ’s Natalie Moore moderated a conversation with scholars Robert Chaskin and Mark Joseph about their new book on the Chicago Housing Authority -- “Integrating the Inner City: The Promise and Perils of Mixed Income Public Housing Transformation.”

The book is five years worth of field research about CHA’s billion-dollar experiment to remake public housing.

The December 2015 event was at Newberry Library and jointly sponsored by the University of Chicago Urban Network, School of Social Service Administration, Center for the Study of Race, Politics, and Culture, Seminary Co-op Bookstore, the Kreisman Initiative on Housing Law and Policy, and the National Public Housing Museum.
