Artist and activist Tonika Johnson joins Michal Raz-Russo, Programs Director at The Gordon Parks Foundation, to discuss her upcoming projects that address the lasting impact discriminatory practices have had in shaping Chicago neighborhoods. This conversation provides insight into Johnson’s Folded Map Project, which addresses urban segregation by connecting individuals from across the city.
