What Went Wrong in Chicago? America's Most Segregated City

  • Published 8 months ago

The documentary Where did Chicago go wrong tells the story of a city caught in the aftermath of a policy of mass displacement shaded by a long history of segregation.
The city has a long history with segregation. The legacy of segregation has made it difficult for poor black families to gain access to the economic activity in the city.
Much is said about the violence that plagues Chicago’s hyper-segregated communities. But what is known about the systems that created them? The laws that isolated them? Or the policies that abandoned them? How does a city heal from the decades of heartbreak and pain?
This documentary tries to tell that story.
