Chicago at the Crossroad

A historical examination of the systematic creation of neighborhoods plagued by violence.

While gun violence is on the decline in most major U.S. cities, why has it continued to increase in many of Chicago’s communities? This documentary reveals how the elimination of public housing led to instability on the city’s South and West sides, and opens a rare historical window into the systematic creation of neighborhoods plagued by violence.

Chicago at the Crossroad is a local public television program presented by WTTW.
