Join Arts + Public Life this summer for a three-part conversation about the Black economy.

Artist Rick Lowe and journalist Natalie Moore team up to dish and dissect the intersections of race and economic development. Presented in conjunction with Black Wall Street Journey—a hub for neighborhood regeneration initiated by Lowe in Washington Park—and anchored by the centennial anniversary of the 1921 Tulsa Race Massacre and observation of the historic Black Wall Street, guests from disparate sectors of the Black economic landscape will weigh in on cultural dimensions of Black ownership, business, self-reliance, determination and mutual aid.

June CHOP IT UP featured guests Keewa Nurullah, Kido Chicago Richard Wallace, Equity and Transformation (EAT) Damon Jones, University of Chicago, Harris School of Public Policy
