Join us for the BMRC Fellows Presentation Series!

You are invited to our BMRC Fellows Presentation Series. This is an opportunity to learn more about the current research of our ‘20-‘21 BMRC Fellows pinpointing specific aspects of Black Chicago’s history and culture that is aligned with their overall research area. The series features seven current fellows who will provide context for their research, share the intent of their specific summer project, discuss the significance and impact of their findings thus far and plans for further study.

To attend please RSVP to with “Fellows” in the subject line. The Zoom links for the entire series will be sent to you.
