In Chicago, another way black lives don't seem to matter is revealed

Non Profit Quarterly reports:
The Midwest’s largest collection of black literature is in jeopardy and Chicago city officials do not exactly appear to be on the case. The Carter G. Woodson Library in the Southside Chicago neighborhood of Washington Heights, which is primarily African American, is in danger of being destroyed as the building housing it crumbles. The city does not seem to have a timely solution to save it.
Half of a $10 million rescue grant by the state hasn't even been funded.
