Chicago is one of the most widely celebrated, routinely demonized, and thoroughly contested cities in the world. Kevin Coval’s “A People’s History of Chicago” celebrates the history of this great American city from the perspective of those on the margins, whose stories often go untold. These seventy-seven poems (for the city’s seventy-seven neighborhoods) honor the everyday lives and enduring resistance of the city’s workers, poor people, and people of color, whose cultural and political revolutions continue to shape the social landscape.
