“Making the West Side: Community Conversations on Neighborhood Change” is a year-long project funded through the National Endowment for the Humanities that will bring together scholars, activists, neighborhood residents, and other stakeholders to investigate the history of neighborhood change on Chicago’s West Side and connect those histories to contemporary issues and concerns. The project kicked off with a public forum on May 19 and continues through the summer with community conversations across Chicago’s West Side.
