My father was born in Englewood in a house at 63rd and State Street in December 1950, seven months after the tragic Green Hornet streetcar crash at the same corner. My mother was born in November 1953 in Yazoo City, Miss., but moved to Chicago when she was 7 years old, along with millions of other Black folk who moved north during the Great Migration.

My dad moved to 66th and Carpenter Street when he was 3 or 4 — as I was growing up, he’d always point out the street sign to me and my sister and joke about the Carpenters living on Carpenter — and my mom spent her middle and high school years living about 2 miles away at 424 W. Tremont St.

Though I grew up in the south and southwest suburbs, I was born at Michael Reese Hospital in Bronzeville. I’m a proud Hyde Park resident now, and while I don’t know if I’ll ever feel I’ve earned the right to call myself a South Sider, my South Side roots run deep. As a kid, I looked forward to trips to the city in part because these drives involved a new assortment of dishes to try, from smoky barbecue sauce-smothered rib tips and fries from Lem’s Bar-B-Q, to soul food from the legendary (and since closed) Park Manor institution Army and Lou’s.
