Book Description: 
The 75 articles in “Encountering Evanston History” start with the removal of Indigenous tribes, the founding of Northwestern University and the coming of early settlers, and then take readers through the development of the City, its infrastructure, educational and public safety institutions, its businesses and its social and cultural fabric.
 
For many years, regrettably, housing, the schools, the hospitals and some social service organizations were segregated, and there was often a separate, parallel structure for Black residents. Evanston is continuing to address past discrimination. From a Methodist town that banned alcohol, Evanston has evolved into a thriving multicultural community where friends and colleagues can talk about the concerns of the day over a glass of wine or a beer.
