Chicago 1919: Confronting the Race Riots (Web Resources)
Title: Chicago 1919: Confronting the Race Riots
Author: Karen Christianson
Author: D. Bradford Hunt
Author: Liesl Olson
Abstract: "Chicago 1919: Confronting the Race Riots" is a year-long initiative to heighten the 1919 Chicago race riots in the city’s collective memory, engaging Chicagoans in public conversations about the legacy of the most violent week in Chicago history. Funded by a National Endowment for the Humanities "Community Conversations" grant, the project is being coordinated by the Newberry Library in partnership with 13 other Chicago institutions. At the heart of Chicago 1919 are 11 dynamic public programs designed to activate audiences and encourage them to examine the mechanisms through which segregation and inequality have been created, solidified, and reinforced over the past 100 years. Each program will focus on a specific expression of institutionalized racism, from policing and education to housing and the media. Chicago 1919 aims to address difficult history, to come together in recognition and reconciliation, and to imagine possible ways forward.
