Horace Hall and John Joe Schlichtman: How Gentrification and Lack of Access to Education Feed Inequality
In many American cities, including Chicago, the likelihood of being able to realize one’s dreams depends largely on your zip code. From neighborhood to neighborhood, sometimes from street to street, opportunity is not spread equally throughout the city. In this episode, DePaul Professor Horace Hall, who co-founded a Chicago youth outreach program, joins Professor John Joe Schlichtman, an urban sociologist, to discuss inequality and gentrification— issues at the root of controversies over development, housing, safety and education. The two experts discuss how gentrification affects Chicagoans and how people can be more mindful citizens.
