    [The 90’s raw: Anthony Hughes]

    Raw footage for the award-winning series The 90’s. Fred Bridges visits artist Anthony Hughes in the notorious housing project Cabrini Green. “Cabrini Green is my home. It’s always been my home. When most people think of Cabrini Green, they think of the drugs and the crime and every other negative thing you can think of. When I think of about it, I think about all the wonderful people who have meant so much to me in my life. …I’m an artist, and what I try to do is to share these people with the world, so that they’ll see that Cabrini Green is more than just the images you see in the media, but is real people. So through my art I try to share these real people with other real people.” He shows us his realistic charcoal drawings of Cabrini Green residents.
