As the morning sun gently filtered through my bedroom window, casting a warm glow over my cozy bed, I embarked on a captivating journey with High-Risers audiobook by Ben Austen. With Ron Butler’s soothing voice guiding me through the pages of history, I found myself immersed in the turbulent tale of Chicago’s Cabrini-Green housing project.

The vivid descriptions and personal narratives woven into this audiobook painted a poignant picture of a community grappling with poverty, segregation, and the failures of government. As someone who values social justice and urban history, I was deeply moved by the struggles and triumphs of the residents who called Cabrini-Green home.

A powerful theme that resonated with me was the juxtaposition between public perception and personal reality. While Cabrini-Green was often stigmatized as a hotbed of crime and despair, Austen’s narrative humanized its inhabitants, showcasing their resilience and humanity in the face of adversity.

High-Risers is not just a recounting of past events; it serves as a thought-provoking reflection on America’s ongoing challenges with affordable housing and racial inequality. Austen’s meticulous research and empathetic storytelling shed light on the complexities of urban life and the enduring impact of policy decisions on marginalized communities.
