4. My home town.

We lived on 30th and Lake for years. Got to experience the court mandated integration plan in the 70s.

The challenges continue - but the article is a striking reminder of how deep the virulent racism went. Even when I grew up in the 70s, the differences in safety were obvious when you went through white neighborhoods.

It was definitely an education I will never forget about the collusion of so-called polite society - banks, retail stores, city government, and real estate - with the crimes against humanity perpetrated against black people.
