SixtyFifthSt Media (SFSM) produces short, peer-reviewed multimedia essays and podcasts on and about the Southside of Chicago specifically, and the Black Urban Midwest experience at large. SFSM empowers academics and everyday citizens alike to craft and build community around their stories by reviewing and publishing them. We focus on the Southside of Chicago and the Black Urban Midwest because even in 2021 (despite much social progress), we remain a misunderstood and unheard people.
