Maxey's Mansion > Aired 1 March 2006


Alva Maxey-Boyd, now in her nineties, defied race covenants, urban renewal bulldozers, and two Mayor Daleys in a seven-decade battle to get and keep her gorgeous 19th-century mansion. Now, she's left as the last resident on her block of Chicago's South Prairie Avenue. Produced by Dan Collison and Elizabeth Meister of Long Haul Productions.
