An IPRO focused on the redevelopment activities of the Bronzeville neighborhood adjacent to campus was offered for several semesters with each team's project building on work done by previous IPROs. The Spring 2000 IPRO involved conducting oral interviews with Bronzeville residents.
Description of the Collection
Thirty-one page booklet, Bronzeville Digital Stories, being a print version of interviews conducted by Illinois Institute of Technology students with nine African-Americans, current and former residents of Chicago's historically black neighborhood. In electronic form, these pages were part of a larger Web document created as the students' final report for their academic project.
Significant document with history research value for its inclusion of first-person accounts. Also valuable as one of what should be a growing body of materials documenting the Bronzeville IPRO series.
