Named the “Great Migration”, the Bronzeville community on Chicago’s South Side was the center for African-American culture and business in the 1920s-1950s. After years of decline, the community has been rebuilding, making Bronzeville a testament to the power of legacy cultural institutions and social service organizations in urban communities and tactical approaches to community organizing. Stops on this tour include The Urban Resilience Network (TURN), South Side Community Arts Center, and a unique retail space called the Bronzeville Boombox.
