North Lawndale, Community of Change

North Lawndale, Community of Change

This week on the Barber Shop Show, Richard Steele talked to Sam Israel about his recent report on the history of North Lawndale. They also talked about parallels between the aspirations of Jewish residents and, later on, black residents who migrated from the Deep South. Later we heard from Congressman Danny Davis and Larry Dixon about a museum that aims to document the legacy of Dr Martin Luther King’s work in North Lawndale. The Barber Shop Show airs on Fridays and Saturdays at Noon on 91.1FM. In addition, the show broadcasts on Sundays at 3pm on WBEZ 91.5FM
