Dawn Turner: Three Girls from Bronzeville

Dawn Turner: Three Girls from Bronzeville

In Three Girls from Bronzeville, Dawn Turner crafts a uniquely American, uniquely Chicago story of race, fate, and sisterhood. Set in the historic South Side neighborhood where the award-winning novelist and former Chicago Tribune reporter grew up, Turner’s memoir explores her childhood in the wake of the civil rights movement. Join Turner and former Chicago Tribune colleague Dahleen Glanton as they discuss the story of three girls from Bronzeville, whose life paths took dramatically different turns. Their story powerfully illuminates both the particular and ubiquitous nature of our city and our country.

This program is presented in partnership with African American Women's Magazine Media.
