Latinx Chicago: Arts against Erasure
Saturday, December 4
Artmaking in advocacy for Latinx Chicago spaces and stories happens in many ways across this city, from song and spoken word, to prose and public art. The Chicago History Museum and the Gage Park Latinx Council are proud to spotlight a local filmmaker who uses their creativity to amplify their culture and community history.
Join us and filmmaker Emilio Nieto for the premiere of Fragments of Gage: Episodes 1 & 2, a documentary about Gage Park’s contemporary activism by youth for youth. Hear from Nieto and a panel of Gage Park young historians as they share the rich stories of their community.
