Brendan Epton is 21 years old, and works at a legal clinic in North Lawndale. One of his clients at the clinic is the same age: Dequarion Williams. Last month, the two recorded a remote StoryCorps interview together. Brendan started by asking Dequarion about growing up in North Lawndale.
This interview was recorded through a partnership with the Lawndale Christian Legal Center. It was facilitated by StoryCorps Chicago’s Amy Tardif.
