2020 Signal to Noise Winner!

We’re excited to announce the winner of the 2020 Signal to Noise Award! Naeema Torres’ audio documentary, Land of Lincoln, will examine the way Black History has been documented and put on display in the United States through the legacy of The Crenshaw House, also known as the Old Slave House. The audio documentary will cover the folklore surrounding the Crenshaw house, its relationship to slavery and its hand in the flourishing of Illinois, local free black communities, and the ghost stories that still permeate the area. Thanks to our amazing partner UnionDocs for helping us present the award again this year. And congratulations, Naeema!
