Natalie Moore, WBEZ South Side reporter and author of The South Side: A Portrait of Chicago and American Segregation, moderates this two-part series inspired by Race: Are We So Different? Explore the exhibition and attend the 60-minute discussion followed by a 15-minute Q&A.

Part 2: Local scholars and policymakers discuss politics, power, and the hierarchy of race in Chicago. The exhibition Race: Are We So Different? examines how economic interests, politics, and struggles for power shape our understanding of race. How have those power struggles shaped the meaning of race in Chicago and informed who benefits and who gets left behind?

Continue the conversation at the post-program reception in the North & Clark Café. Cash bar available.
