Through a brief lecture and a theatrical reading, Chicago Public Library and Chicago Urban League provide a closer, more Chicago-centric look at the Great Migration.
First, hear from historian Adam Green as he gives a general overview of this era. Next, Congo Square Theatre reads from The Warmth of Other Suns, focusing on Chicagoan Ida Mae Gladney, whose story of leaving Mississippi is told in the book. Stay for light reception and say hello to Ida Mae’s Chicago family!
Presented in partnership with the Chicago Urban League.
