Not Your Mama's Bus Tour

1331 S. Michigan, Chicago, Illinois 60605 USA

“see Chicago through the eyes of the homeless”

"The "Not Your Mama's Bus Tour" began cruising Chicago's mean streets last year. It's sponsored by "StreetWise, " a non-profit organization that helps the homeless turn their lives around. Along the way, passengers are serenaded with poetry, music and short stories written by former street people. The underlying message is that just because you're down, doesn't mean you're out. Cheryl Murphy was pregnant 10 years ago with no place to call home. Today, she has an apartment and her own business. The tour gives her a chance to channel her dream and despair into an entertaining and enriching journey for others. "I'd like to talk to you about a very special friend of mine, his name was Joseph Gould," says Mark D. Hayes, one of the tour's actors. Hayes says Joseph Gould didn't have a home, but he had big dreams. Gould was killed on July 30, 1995, by an off-duty police officer, but charges were never filed."
