Pangea Provides Support for WTTW Broadcast on Ida B. Wells
Chicago-based Pangea Properties is providing financial support for WTTW’s hour-long Chicago Stories special on Ida B. Wells on Friday, May 21 at 8:00 pm on all WTTW platforms. Pangea’s 501(c)(3) nonprofit arm, Pangea Cares, donated funds to help make possible the broadcast of the story of one of Chicago’s most prolific and impactful social justice crusaders.
The program will look into the life and work of Wells as Chicago’s trailblazing investigative journalist, civil rights leader and suffragist. It will present interviews with Wells’ descendants as well as Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Nikole Hannah-Jones, who created the Ida B. Wells Society for Investigative Reporting and the 1619 Project.
Pangea Cares is committed to helping build and renovate the Chicago, Indianapolis and Baltimore neighborhoods in which Pangea Properties operates. The initiative works to make a meaningful social impact by tackling three pillars of community service: food & nutrition, education enrichment and community development.
