It’s a Masters Class spun on wax. Plus music from Idris Muhammad, and much more.

When Nelson Mandela came to Chicago in the early 90s, he commented on how segregated the city is, and how it reminded him of apartheid South Africa.

On this installment of Practically Speaking, we explore how Chicago has come to be known as one of the most segregated cities in the U.S. with Lincoln Quillian, assistant professor of sociology at Northwestern University.
We also take a look at the historical West Side vs. South Side divide among Blacks in Chicago. Host Audra Wilson talks to Henrietta Whitaker, who’s lived in Chicago for 40 years. She lives on the South Side, but worked for many years on the West Side.
