Natalie Moore - "The South Side" - Symphony Center

Wednesday, October 4, 2017 - 7:00pm - 8:30pm

Natalie Moore, Chicago Public Radio South Side reporter and author of The South Side: A Portrait of Chicago and American Segregation, and Denia Barrett, director of the Institute’s Center for Child and Adolescent Psychotherapy, will engage in a conversation about the impact of systemic racism on residents of the South Side and what clinicians can do about it.

Moore’s book examines the ways segregation seeps into our consciousness and realms of our lives: food deserts, black politics, and violence. Barrett will facilitate the conversation, drawing on her experience with the Institute’s Schools Initiatives, which provide individual and group psychotherapy at elementary schools in Englewood, South Shore, and other communities.

A book signing for The South Side will follow.
