Against All Odds: The Fight for the Middle Class

When it comes to daily headlines, the black middle class is nearly invisible. The news tends to focus on dysfunction in poor black neighborhoods, confrontations with police, disappointing achievements in urban schools. There's a lot missing from that narrative. To find out more, we talk with journalist Bob Herbert, who wrote and produced the documentary “Against All Odds: The Fight for a Black Middle Class.” He brings decades of reporting and analysis together to explain what African-American families have confronted in pursuing the American Dream.

    Good Bye to The Planning Coalition
    From the beginning of my tenure at The Planning Coalition, there has been a strong and mutually sustaining relationship between the block clubs and the Coalition. The work of each of these groups was informed by each other's success and - yes, let's own it - the occasional failures.

Spring is in the air!

Hello neighbors,

Is anyone interested in starting a neighborhood garden in South Shore? Do you know of an empty lot for which we could get permission to use to install some raised beds and work together to grow some vegetables?
I have the knowledge and willpower to help but I can't do it by myself.
Who's interested???

    The Peterson Garden people may be able to help https://petersongarden.org/
