Was there a Black Chicago Renaissance in the early twentieth century? One that rivaled the Harlem Renaissance? In this talk, Professor Darlene Clark Hine, a pioneer in African American women’s and gender history, vividly tells the story of how Chicago fostered a major arts movement in the 1930s where creativity, music, dance, performance, activism, scholarship and literature flourished.

The Evanston Northwestern Humanities Lecture Series is an ongoing collaboraton between The Alice Kaplan Institute for the Humanities and the Evanston Public Library, whereby Northwestern University humanities faculty share their research with members of the Evanston community.

Light refreshments will be served.
