  • Beyond the cremonial unveiling of a statue of Paul Laurence Dunbar,what is going on with the future educational curriculum of the underserved, disadvantaged predominantly AFRICAN-AMERICAN students who attend this revitalized urban high school campus in the historic Bronzeville community?

  • Certainly there must be some innovative writers workshops featuring the literary contributions of writers like Paul Lawrence Dunbar and other literary giants of the Black Cultural Renaissance that took place in Bronzeville! :-)

Child care options in the Sloop

Hi neighbors - I'm planning to enroll my son in a care facility in January. He'll be 13 months and this will be his first exposure to outside care. I believe I've narrowed it down to JTA Schools (Clark & Harrison) or Kids & Company (State & 14th).

Both are newer locations, but I'm hoping someone who has dealt with either in any capacity is willing to share their experience.

I've spoken with a few parents at each facility, but since this is a big decision, additional perspective is welcome. Thanks in advance!

  • Our now-3-year-old daughter has been at JTA Schools since she was 14 months old. She loves it there! There's a focus on learning, both through structured activity and free play. There is good communication between school and parents.

Reggie's Not a Place for Jazz

Went to the Starlight Jazz concert at Reggie's last week. Our first time at this venue. And the last. I didn't realize that Reggie's is actually two clubs - and with high-volume head-banger music being played next door during the Jazz sets, that's all you could hear! If you're into headbanger music, salute. But don't expect to hear anything at the space next door (and even if going in for a meal, you'll get blown out by the noise from next door).
