Natalie’s work has been published in Essence, Black Enterprise, the Chicago Reporter, Bitch, In These Times, the Chicago Sun-Times and the Chicago Tribune. She is co-author of the book Deconstructing Tyrone: A New Look at Black Masculinity in the Hip-Hop Generation. She is also co-author of The Almighty Black P Stone Nation: The Rise, Fall and Resurgence of an American Gang. She’s currently working on a book about segregation on the South Side. It will be out next year.
For the April 16th event, Natalie will be reading some in-progress work from her new book. She’ll cover the topics of food deserts, corner stores and the differences in shopping on the North vs. South sides.
Residents of Beverly/Morgan Park will likely already be familiar with Moore’s work at WBEZ, specifically her report on the history of integration here, which later became a Q&A event at the Beverly Arts Center. You can read more of her South Side reporting here or watch the video below to learn more about WBEZ’s South Side bureau.
