Description

Chicago's history is filled with stories of neighborhoods that were white one day, only to turn African American, seemingly overnight. The transition can be ugly and physically violent, or subtle and emotionally distressing. Wrightwood, a middle-class community of 10,057 people and brick bungalows, has experienced both. Reporters analyzed Wrightwood's demographic data, housing values, crime statistics and other characteristics, and got to know the community's leaders and neighbors through interviews and neighborhood meetings.
