Here’s our community. What’s yours doing?


 I wish every neighborhood of Chicago had their version of the West Side Writing Project. If they did, we would hear and see so many more voices.

I especially like the imagination of their Nitty Gritty News. Watch their presentation on gun violence on their first show, and then skip over to their second where they talk about food  deserts and what people on food stamps should be able to eat. Tell me if that’s not the voice of the community.

Here’s the link. The second show is on You Tube as well.

It would hard to find a better statement about what’s wrong with the way the news media covers violence, and what needs to be done than this WGN.

Again, after you watch this, let’s talk.
