Join us for our this Cafe Society with WBEZ reporter NATALIE MOORE and photographer Carlos Javier Ortiz, who spent 48 hours in Roseland (last Memorial Day weekend) with boys trying to stay out of the crossfire and residents trying to keep the peace. Also, Natalie Moore recently spent 48 hours doing the SNAP challenge and eating off $5 a day.
