“Going to Chicago” were the words said, sung, and shouted by African-Americans during the Great Migration, forever changing the city and the nation. But Chicago's Black experience predates that by nearly a century and a half and continues to this day. From Jean Baptiste Point DuSable to Ida B. Wells to Barack Obama and beyond, this experience is rich, deep, and profound. Please join historian and entertainer Clarence Goodman for “Emancipation to Inauguration: Chicago’s Black Experience” to learn more! Program will be rescheduled at a later date.
