Illinois Authors: Growing up in segregated Chicago - Episode 22
Author and Pulitzer Prize-winning arts critic Margo Jefferson talks with the Paul Simon Public Policy Institute about her memoir "Negroland," which recounts what it was like to come of age in Black Chicago's upper crust at a time when the city -- and the country -- was racially segregated. This conversation is part of our "Illinois Authors" series, in which we meet the writers that bring the Prairie State to life.
