Episode 31 - Talking Chicago History w/ Willarene McGill: Part 1

March 31, 2021

Welcome to Season 3 of Off The Beaten Podcast. This episode, I sat and talked with my mother, Willarene McGill, who has lived in Chicago since the 60's. I couldn't think of a more perfect person to talk about change over time. This is part 1 of our conversation! We set the stage of where she came from, how she got to Chicago, and how she made a way for herself in not only a new city, but a large, segregated city like Chicago.
