BLACK LEADERS MATTER

April 23 | Saturday | 6:30 p.m.
Pre-Show Celebration | Post­-Show Panel Conversation

From Langston Hughes to Mary McLeod Bethune, black leaders, activists, and artists have historically (and continue to) engage the country on rights and reparations for African American citizens. With the 2016 Presidential election well underway, every political debate has included questions relating to racial inequity, slavery reparations, and other areas of black politics. What impact have black leaders, young and old, continue to hold in this country? Join Chicago black leaders for pre­­-show refreshments from Fiesta Mexicana, then stick around for a special Afterwords post-­show conversation on the importance of black leadership.

Public Programs are free and open to the public and do not require an RSVP. Come to one or come to all. We’d love to have you!
