Exhibit on Gun Violence

It’s been a violent summer in the Bluff City. More than 70 people have been murdered and many more wounded by gun fire, left to live with the constant physical reminders of their encounter with a gun. After enduring violence in their own Chicago neighborhood, writer Stephanie Arena and photographer Robert Drea decided to chronicle the stories of shooting survivors. Their work, “Wounded in America,” will be on display at the National Civil Rights Museum August 4th. To see the stories they’ve collected, go to WoundedinAmerica.org.
