On July 24th, CRR1919 and partners commemorated the Chicago Race Riot of 1919 with our 3rd annual anniversary event. More than 300 joined us on our bike and trolley tour of Bronzeville and Bridgeport! Community members gathered at the Chicago Military Academy and then visited major historic sites exploring the patterns of racial violence and segregation, as well as Black resilience and resistance, that have shaped our city for 101 years and counting. Tour sites included the Chicago Defender, Chicago Bee, Ida B. Wells Light and Truth Monument, and Victory Monument. Please watch the video below and join us at our next event!
