Event Details

"Going to Chicago!" were the words composed, sung, and lived by African Americans during the Great Migration.  From sharecropper to share-holder and from the shotgun shack to the White House, Chicago's black experience is vast, rich, and inspiring.  Join us for a story of World War I. Chicago historian Clarence Goodman presents this lively and informative program.

This event is part of the Brookfield Reads! community reading initiative. This year's book is The South Side: A Portrait of Chicago and American Segregation by Natalie Moore. Please join us for the Brookfield Reads! Finale featuring author Natalie Moore on Sunday, June 2, 3 p.m. at the Brookfield Zoo.
