    A bridge to segregation? Englewood photographer introduces neighbors on opposite sides of Chicago
    The street names around her high school in Lakeview sounded familiar to Tonika Johnson but everything else made her feel like it was a world apart from her Englewood neighborhood. As she commuted by train and bus to Lane Technical College Prep High School, she'd pass Paulina Street and Ashland Avenue, north-south streets that stretch to her South Side neighborhood.

  • Lap Desks for a Moving, Deconstructed Classroom

    Ms. Anderson is asking for $865.98:
    My students need 34 lap desks--one desk each--to make our classroom mobile. My students need space to think, write, and learn anywhere, and these lap desks will give them a small portable space to work productively.
