Educating Uptown, Senn High School, Chicago

My mom graduated from Senn High School in 1963. While looking up information in the school, I came across this short video called "Educating Uptown". The description on YouTube says: "Uptown, like many ethnically and economically diverse neighborhoods, is a community of contradictions. Gangs hang out on decrepit street corners in the shadow of million-dollar townhouses. For some Uptown youth, education is merely an afterthought. In recent years, schools and community organizations have established many programs to combat this problem and bring educational opportunities to Uptown students. We explore some of the obstacles facing young people in Uptown as well as the opportunities available to aid in the continuation of their education."

The video features Kuumba Lynx, Uplift Community High School, and Senn Achievement Academy, a school within Senn.

During the early 60s Senn had an eclectic mix of student hang outs. The Madras shirt and penny loafer crowd usually chose "Harry's".Those favoring cuban heels and baggy blues found Bob's more to their taste. Kids now referred to as gangbangers made Green and White their destination of choice. All in all, Ardmore Ave was a beehive of activity.
