The Heart of the Matter

Program Air Date: 12/09/2022

Program Overview

It’s hard to think of Chicago as anything other than a political town. The city is home to some of the most powerful politicians in the country, and politics are always on people’s minds. But what many people don’t realize is that Chicago has a rich history of activism and community organizing. Sylvia Snowden joins In The Arena to discuss how she makes politics make sense for Chicagoans who might otherwise find it an overly complicated exercise in futility and perceive it to be beyond their understanding.
