Hey! I’m Iris. Thank you for taking the time to read my works. Hope you enjoy!
In my English class at school, we recently finished a unit on the Chicago Projects. The Projects were meant to help the poor people of the city find a home without paying too much, but they eventually fell apart after being overrun with crime and violence. We listened to a series of podcasts by LeAlan Jones and Lloyd Newman, and after listening to their first podcast, "Ghetto Life 101", I wrote this piece. Please enjoy!
Here is a link to the podcast, if anyone is interested in listening to it. It contains a wonderful yet tragic story of the lives of two boys living in the south side of Chicago.
