Gutman Library Book Talk: Ghosts in the Schoolyard: Racism and School Closings on Chicago's South Side
Presented by author Eve L. Ewing, Univeristy of Chidago
Black communities see the closing of their schools—schools that
are certainly less than perfect but that are theirs—as yet one more in a long line of racist
policies. The fight to keep them open is yet another front in the ongoing struggle of black
people in America to build successful lives and achieve true self-determination.
