Pre-Show Celebration & Post-Show Conversation
February 23, 2017

Reception begins at 6:30 p.m. in the Victory Gardens lobby

Post-Show conversation to follow the evening performance of A WONDER IN MY SOUL

While Chicago is one of the most segregated cities in the country, its Black community has a long political and economic legacy. With historical icons like congressman Oscar DePriest, journalist Ida B. Wells, gospel great Mahalia Jackson, and many others all rooted historically in Chicago, it’s no wonder Chicago is considered the heart of Black America. Enjoy Marcus Gardley’s A Wonder in My Soul and then stick around for this enlightening post-show conversations where historians, icons, and more talk about the beating heart of the Windy City.
