Event Details

The story of Chicago is a tale of two cities. It is both the booming metropolis with world-class institutions and strong neighborhoods, but also is struggling with segregation and racial inequity. Tonika Johnson’s project, Folded Map, leverages the urban structure of Chicago to find the mirror points of the city and visually compares them through photographs as well as having residents from those communities meet each other on video. 

This event is part of the Brookfield Reads! community reading initiative. This year's book is The South Side: A Portrait of Chicago and American Segregation by Natalie Moore. Please join us for the Brookfield Reads! Finale featuring author Natalie Moore on Sunday, June 2, 3 p.m. at the Brookfield Zoo.
