Synopsis:
The award-winning creators of National Public Radio's "Ghetto Life 101" and "Remorse: The 14 Stories of Eric Morse" combine talents with a young photographer to show what life is like in one of the country's darkest places: Chicago's Ida B. Wells housing project. Photos.

Review:
"This harrowing oral history...was compiled by two teenagers...who were 13 when they began interviewing friends, family members and neighbors back in 1993....Their book...not only makes palpable all the numbing statistics we've heard about gang violence and juvenile crime, but also underscores the resilience and talents of inner-city children, when given an opportunity to make sense of their lives."

Michiko Kakutani, New York Times, 07/11/1997

Review:
"'Our America' is meant to stir the mind and break the heart, and it does just that."

New York Times Book Review, 07/20/1997
