1919 Red Summer: Chicago Remembers

Saturday, July 27

The Chicago History Museum and the DuSable Museum of African American History come together to remember the historic events of the summer of 1919. Featuring artists and historians, this event recalls the 1919 race riots that forever changed Chicago’s sociopolitical atmosphere. As we reflect on their tragic legacy, we honor the life of Eugene Williams and others affected by police brutality and segregation.

Meet at Margaret T. Burroughs Beach, 3100 South Lake Shore Drive

Free and open to the public. No RSVPs needed.
