The Chicago Race Riots of 1919 were the most violent week in the city's history. What happened, and why? Join us on January 26th at 2 p.m. for a conversation about this poorly understood and often forgotten moment in Chicago's history with D. Bradford Hunt, Chicago historian and Vice President for Research and Academic Programs at the Newberry Library. He and the Newberry have led a year-long set of public programming across the city reflecting on the violence of 1919 and how its legacies help us understand the divides of our present day. Dr. Hunt’s lecture will be preceded by a brief Annual Meeting of the Wilmette Historical Society. All are welcome to this free lecture, but seating is limited. Please email email@example.com or call (847) 853-7666 to reserve tickets.
