On the Media’s series on poverty is grounded in the Talmudic notion that “We do not see things as they are. We see things as we are.” Brooke Gladstone traveled to Ohio to learn from people living the varied reality of poverty today, and to unpack the myths that shape our private presumptions as well as our policy decisions. In each episode, we feature the voices and complex stories of individuals, as well essential context from scholars, to lay open the tales we tell ourselves.
Evicted tells the story of both a white and black neighborhood in Milwaukee, WI. Desmond follows eight families through their journey of finding stable housing and how the eviction system creates a cycle hard to break. It is long and includes statistics, but really gets to the heart of the problems related to evictions.
