The Legacy Project
The Legacy Project
The Legacy Project campaign is digital media series meant to document and celebrate the legacy of The Michael Reese Hospital system. We’ll depend on members of the Bronzeville community who worked at the hospital or were involved in or impacted by the medical innovations that took place there, to act as oral historians in video interviews and still portraits. This campaign will speak to the legacy of Bronzeville and Michael Reese innovation, and the people that made it all happen.
