Community Discussion

Please join us for the BMRC's Community Discussion about our Community Needs and Assets Assessment. We ran this survey through February and the first half of March and would like to share the results with the Black Chicagoland community members who are interested in learning more. The CNAA and this discussion will help us determine topics for archival workshops to be hosted by the BMRC throughout the rest of 2021. Join us for a presentation of the survey results by Community Engagement Archivist, Tanya Calvin, and a discussion about Black Chicagoland’s archival and legacy management needs. If you’re interested in preserving the history of your Black communities in and around Chicago, this discussion is for you!

Note: These discussions are intended to get feedback and input from Black residents of Chicago and those who work on behalf of or for Black organizations. Please consider this when choosing to register.
