You are invited to attend this public screening to view the documentary film Chicago at the Crossroad and engage in a meaningful follow-up discussion with panelists at the Chicago Cultural Center - Claudia Cassidy Theater at 6 PM on February 26th at 78 E Washington St. Food and beverages will be provided by The Firehouse Community Art Center - featuring their award winning culinary training program.
Chicago at the Crossroad is a documentary film that chronicles the impact of housing policy in Chicago and opens a rare historical window into the systematic creation of poverty stricken communities plagued by decades of disinvestment. Chicago at the Crossroad is a must see documentary for all who live in our city. Using Chicago as a case study, Chicago at the Crossroad can be a catalyst to create an open and honest dialog on how we got here and what we can do to reduce violence and poverty.
Thought leaders will lead a discussion following the film screening to include community, housing, and violence prevention issues.
In Partnership with the Chicago Department of Cultural Affairs and Special Events, The Firehouse Community At Center, Sinai Community Institute, and Schodorf Media Creative.
