South of Chicago DVD
In the region South of Chicago, everything seems bigger than life—the heroes and villains, the bridges, boats, and buildings, and even peoples dreams. In the newest of his Chicagoland tour programs, host and writer Geoffrey Baer takes you on a tour along the waterways, highways, and railways of Chicago's South Suburbs and Northwest Indiana.
Starting in Gary, with a look inside the largest steel mill in the Western Hemisphere, then travel along the Lake Michigan shoreline to Chicago's Calumet Harbor and cruise the Calumet River to Blue Island. From there, visit Robbins, hop in a Model A Ford and head south on the historic Dixie Highway through the beautiful communities of Homewood, Flossmoor, Olympia Fields, Chicago Heights, and many more.
Includes two special Chicago Stories episodes:
Bessie Coleman: Pilot Pioneer
Pullman Porters: From Servitude to Civil Rights
