Chicago Fire

In the wake of the tragic murder of George Floyd and the events that followed the Gary Comer Youth Center's Youth Advisory Board (YAB) wondered has anything like this happened before in our city?

City on Fire: Protests & Riots in Chicago was an interactive event designed to explore the history of protest culture, riots, and race in Chicago. The YAB facilitated conversations on Red Summer of 1919, the 1968 Riots, and the Chicago Bulls Championship Riot. It also included a special guest panel to discuss the attempted erasure of protests and riots from Chicago history.
