The Lincoln Park Community Research Initiative announces its spring program – WBEZ91.5 Curious City Comes to Lincoln Park. WBEZ’s Curious City team answers a listener’s question about how and why the story of Lincoln Park’s city cemetery was forgotten, and what other Chicago neighborhoods have similar histories below the surface.
The program will be moderated and reported by WBEZ’s Logan Jaffe, the presentation will be the “prequel” to the radio/online story released the week after.
