Chicago Voices 07

I wanted to share with readers here some of the thoughts and reflections of participants in the Chicago Voices project written in their own words on their own blogs. (I'll be featuring more on each of the grant participants, but, for now, I thought I'd just share some of the blogging that's been done. It's awesome.)

  • Hello Kid Oakland,
    Thank you for given me the opportunity to be the part of the Chicago 17. I met great people that I will never forget in my life. As you can see you got into the blogging thing. I think this is better than myspace.
