Redlined: A Memoir of Race, Change, and Fractured Community on 1960s Chicago
"Redlined: A Memoir of Race, Change, and Fractured Community on 1960s Chicago." Join us for a presentation by Linda Gartz as she discusses her memoir, Redlined. Set against the backdrop of the Civil Rights Movement, the book tells the story of one white family on Chicago’s West Side, navigating the uncharted shoals of their neighborhood’s racial change. Based on long-hidden letters and diaries, Gartz’s vivid memoir explores complicated truths of marriage, sexual freedom, and race relations in a devastated landscape, ravaged by racist mortgage laws and shifting amidst a nation undergoing a revolutionary change. Book signing follows the presentation. Copies of Redlined will be available for sale. $10; EHC Members Free. Type: Visual Arts.
