REDLINED A Memoir of Race, Change, and Fractured Community in 1960s Chicago

Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Robin Miles, Moe Egan

History • 10.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2018

Robin Miles and Moe Egan do fine work narrating this revealing memoir of Chicago's West Garfield Park and the author's life, family, and experiences with race relations--especially during the 1960s. Egan voices the author, and her timbre, tone, and style are just right. The supremely talented Miles depicts the many African American characters and does them well. This is mostly a family story of striving German Americans who stay in Garfield Park despite urban blight, which is enabled by the federal redlining policies that were crafted to harm housing opportunities for Black Americans. Gartz's story is a kind of counter-narrative that discloses the hardships that both Black people and her white family experienced during that tumultuous time. An audiobook worth listening to. A.D.M.
