African-American dialects in Illinois (outside of Chicago)

Where: East St. Louis, Illinois
Then: Late 20th century, early 21st
Who: The African American population at or slightly above the poverty level

Is the local dialect significantly different than the rest of Southern Illinois or across the river in St. Louis, Missouri? Could the locals tell the difference?
