Chicago Tonight

Taking a Look at Uptown 40 Years Ago

Clip: 11/20/2013 | 7m 9s

In the mid-70s, the Uptown neighborhood was filled with poor whites, blacks, Hispanics and Asians. It was infected with gang activity, mental illness and a unique architectural style. One man decided to document it all with his camera, and is now sharing the images in his new book, Uptown: Portrait of a Chicago Neighborhood in the Mid 1970s. We talk with Bob Rehak, the book's author.
