The South Side is a lyrical, intelligent, authentic, and necessary look at the intersection of race and class in Chicago, a Great American City.  In this intelligent and highly important narrative, Chicago-native Natalie Moore shines a light on contemporary segregation in the city's South Side; with a memoirist's eye, she showcases the lives of these communities through the stories of people who reside there.  The South Side  shows the impact of Chicago's historic segregation - and the ongoing policies that keep the system intact.

Natalie Moore is the South Side bureau reporter for WBEZ, Chicago’s NPR–member station. Before joining WBEZ, she covered Detroit’s City Council for Detroit News. She worked as an education reporter for the  St. Paul Pioneer Press  and as a reporter for the Associated Press in Jerusalem.
