Lee covered all aspects of the community. He was able to gain access to apartments of the poor and well to do. He took street shots and shots within public spaces like churches, theaters, and saloons. Some of the best show the South Side's world renowned blues and dance bands in action.
This portrait of Lee is by an unknown photographer.
A personal note: In the summer of 1968 I trained as a VISTA volunteer with young men from Chicago's South Side. We served in a work camp run by the Hull House Association. This time spent with those guys was one of the best experiences of my life (more on this camp can be found here).
