About this event:
Join a panel of journalists, activists and business leaders as they look at Chicago as a gateway for migrants today, just as it was when The Great Migration drew so many African-Americans here in the 20th century. How is 21st century Chicago becoming home to these recent migrants, and how does this influx of new citizens and workers play into the evolution of our city? Panelists include Adolfo Hernandez, director of the Chicago Office of New Americans and Tuyet Le, Executive Director of the Asian American Institute.
Presented in partnership with the Office of New
Americans, City of Chicago.
