Join us as we celebrate the spirit of World Social Justice Day with Dr. Eve Ewing, award-winning author and assistant professor at the University of Chicago School of Social Service Administration.

Join us as we celebrate the spirit of World Social Justice Day with Dr. Eve L. Ewing as she shares perspectives on her work and the world in 2021. 
 

Ewing is a sociologist of education whose research is focuses on racism, social inequality, and urban policy, and the impact of these forces on American public schools and the lives of young people.

Dr. Ewing’s most recent work, 1919, is a unique collection of poems exploring the story of the Chicago Race Riots of 1919. Her first book of poems, Electric Arches, is an imaginative exploration of black girlhood and womanhood through poetry, visual art, and narrative prose, and was awarded the 2018 American Library Association Alex Award, among others.  She is also the author of the 2018 nonfiction work, Ghosts in the Schoolyard: Racism and School Closings on Chicago’s South Side, which examines the 2013 wave of targeted school closing in Chicago’s predominately low-income and African-American south side neighborhoods, resulting in severe educational inequity and a disproportionate lack of resources.  She is currently continuing to write the Champions series for Marvel Comics and working on her next book, Original Sins: The (Mis)education of Black and Native Children and the Construction of American Racism.  

This conversation will be moderated by reporter and author Natalie Moore.  Moore covers segregation and inequality for Chicago’s WBEZ. Her enterprise reporting has tackled race, housing, economic development, food injustice and violence. Moore’s work has been broadcast on the BBC, Marketplace and NPR’s Morning Edition, All Things Considered and Weekend Edition. She is the author of The South Side: A Portrait of Chicago and American Segregation, winner of the 2016 Chicago Review of Books award for nonfiction and a Buzzfeed best nonfiction book of 2016. She is also co-author of The Almighty Black P Stone Nation: The Rise, Fall and Resurgence of an American Gang and Deconstructing Tyrone: A New Look at Black Masculinity in the Hip-Hop Generation.

About Eve Ewing

Dr. Ewing’s most recent work, 1919, is a unique collection of poems exploring the story of the Chicago Race Riots of 1919, an event largely neglected in modern discourse. Her first book of poems, Electric Arches, is an imaginative exploration of black girlhood and womanhood through poetry, visual art, and narrative prose, and was awarded the 2018 American Library Association Alex Award, among others.  She is also the author of the 2018 nonfiction work, Ghosts in the Schoolyard: Racism and School Closings on Chicago’s South Side, which examines the 2013 wave of targeted school closing in Chicago’s predominantly low-income and African-American south side neighborhoods, resulting in severe educational inequity and a disproportionate lack of resources. She is currently continuing to write the Champions series for Marvel Comics and working on her next book, Original Sins: The (Mis)education of Black and Native Children and the Construction of American Racism.

Reporter and author Natalie Moore returns to facilitate this conversation with Dr. Ewing after a thoughtful November 2020 dialogue with Professor Ibram X.

Moore’s work has been broadcast on the BBC, Marketplace and NPR’s Morning Edition, All Things Considered and Weekend Edition. She is the author of The South Side: A Portrait of Chicago and American Segregation, winner of the 2016 Chicago Review of Books award for nonfiction.
