In Many Mansions, our eyes are first drawn to the sign above the colorful flower garden, announcing the eight towers of Chicago's Stateway Gardens projects seen in the distance. Kerry James Marshall combined the real and the ideal to portray the residents' efforts to preserve their community. This teaching packet includes an essay, discussion questions, activity ideas, and a glossary.
