In this documentary, producers Dan Collison and Elizabeth Meister of Long Haul Productions follow Coco and her family as she moves "out the bricks" of Stateway Gardens high-rise public housing to a private market apartment. PRX Editorial Board Member Dmae Roberts describes this story as one that's handled with "tenderness, care and professionalism. It's the small stories that can often be bigger than the headlines of the day. This is no exception." A few months ago, we aired another story by this producing pair: House of Pain. It's also about living in Chicago Public Housing. And it's definitely worth a listen.
