The Colored People of Chicago by Louise DeKoven Bowen (1859 - 1953).


This book presents a summary of the findings conducted by the the Juvenile Protective Association in Chicago before the changes brought on by the war-time economy. The study's researchers were A. P. Drucker, Sophia Boaz, A. L. Harris, and Miriam Schaffner. Its author, Louise DeKoven Bowen, was a well-known philanthropist and suffragist in Chicago. The summary makes no strong argument on its own, but presents simple facts and observations that would alert the reader to the need for social and economic reform in the city. (KevinS)

• This project is now complete. All audio files can be found on our catalog page: https://librivox.org/the-colored-people-of-chicago-by-louise-dekoven-bowen/
  • Text source (only read from this text!): http://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/60375
  • Type of proof-listening required (Note: please read the PL FAQ): standard



    IMPORTANT - soloist, please note: in order to limit the amount of languishing projects (and hence the amount of files on our hard-pressed server), we ask that you post an update at least once a month in your project thread, even if you haven't managed to record anything. If we don't hear from you for three months, your project may be opened up to a group project if a Book Coordinator is found. Files you have completed will be used in this project. If you haven't recorded anything yet, your project will be removed from the forum (contact any admin to see if it can be re-instated).
    Please don't download or listen to files belonging to projects in process (unless you are the BC or PL). Our servers are not set up to handle the greater volume of traffic. Please wait until the project has been completed. Thanks!

Nearly 70 minutes of recording I estimate, though it's hard to tell sometimes. I propose breaking the text up into 3 sections for ease of recording and listening.

Hey, I think I have this on my "someday" list!
So, I'd be glad to have you read it and I'll proof listen.

(I'm listening to reading of Washington's boyhood right now. :lol:

Didn't see a note for Section 1, but it is PL OK

Section 2 has some notes.

1). Volume too low, coming in at only 79.5 dB :shock:
2} 6:21 Repeat: "in nine cases"

Thank you. Soon we'll be 2/3 done. I like projects like this one.

Section 2 fixed, I hope.

I have to say that I sometimes wonder if I know anything about what I'm doing. I have no idea why the first Section 2 had a low volume.
