In a panel conversation led by MCA Senior Curator Naomi Beckwith, luminaries in Chicago's art world discuss the past and future of black space in Chicago. Starting with the Great Migration, the panel explores the ways that black artists are finding space and community in the contemporary art world, diving into the particularities of how Chicago has been shaped by its racial history. This conversation is presented in partnership with the HistoryMakers, a non-profit research institution committed to preserving and making accessible the untold personal stories of African Americans, and the Association for the Study of African American Life and History.
