Chicago’s South Side is lecture topic at History Center

The Dawes House, home of the Evanston History Center

The author of a book about Chicago’s South Side will deliver the next “Under the Buffalo” lecture at the Evanston History Center this Thursday.

WBEZ radio reporter Natalie Y. Moore is author of The South Side: A Portrait of Chicago and American Segregation. She will discuss the history of the city’s patterns and policies of segregation, as well as their contemporary manifestations.

A native and current resident of the South Side, Moore “offers an insightful and deeply human look at the roots and continued impact of segregation in one of America’s most important and representative cities,” according to a news release from the Center.

Her presentation, scheduled for 7 p.m. Thursday, will be preceded by a reception at 6:30 p.m. at the Dawes House, 225 Greenwood St., home of the Center.

While the lecture is free to EHC members, there is a $10 charge for non-members. Advance reservations are encouraged via the Center’s website.
