2016, Bridgeport, and Bronzeville

Posted By on 01.15.09 at 11:29 AM

Punk Planet vet and Unmarketable author Anne Elizabeth Moore, twittering from last night's Lincoln Park 2016 forum"the gentrification of bridgeport and hyde park has just been called 'necessary' by pat ryan."

WBEZ's Natalie Moore, yesterday: "As the city of Chicago continues its quest to land the 2016 Olympics, many who’ve worked hard to rejuvenate the Bronzeville community into a hub of African-American history and commerce now fear the city’s Olympics plans will push them out. And some say it’s an ugly déjà vu."
