The Lincoln Park Community Research Initiative is pleased to present our spring program.
At age 5, Norman Malone (SOM '68, '73) was a budding piano virtuoso. At age 10, after a devastating attack, he became partially paralyzed on the right side. Refusing to give up his passion, he found a teacher at DePaul University's School of Music and learned to play some of most complex piano music ever composed using only his left hand. Yet, the beloved choral instructor at Lincoln Park High School kept his talent hidden for decades. His story is the subject of "For the Left Hand," the acclaimed documentary by Kartemquin Films.

In order to raise awareness of the Lincoln Park Community Research Initiative, to promote donations to the archives and participation in research projects, the Research Initiative sponsors Fall and Spring programs each year. The programs focus on some aspect of life in Lincoln Park, which is a part of our shared history. To stay up-to-date on our programs, join our mailing list below.
