Lifting As They Climbed – Essence McDowell


The hidden histories, places and lives of Black women activists and artists from Chicago’s South Side are revealed. Meet the women who contributed to the development of Chicago from the mid-nineteenth century to today who have been mostly neglected in our textbooks. McDowell presents a visual journey into the published self-guided tour of their history featuring thirty-three historically relevant locations and ten additional sites of interest.

Programs are open to the public; $15 requested donation. No reservation needed.

Lunch is offered at noon prior to the program.  To make a reservation, click here.
