You're invited to come to our next session, which focuses on the Chicago Freedom Movement.
We will talk about aspects of the Chicago Freedom Movement, how it fits into the larger context of the Civil Rights Movement, and more.
We focus on activities that happened here in Chicago fifty years ago, when Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and his family moved to Chicago.
We'll listen to music that resonates with the Chicago Freedom Movement -- such as songs by Mahalia Jackson and Stevie Wonder, and "Oh, Mercy" from the Cannonball Adderley Quintet's Country Preacher album.
Workshop participants will write mesostic poems and make music inspired by the Chicago Freedom Movement.
Bring your musical instruments, art supplies and notebooks. These workshops are interactive and multidisciplinary. We have supplies and equipment on hand that workshop participants can use -- including pencils, pens, paint, a piano, other musical instruments.
Location: Mozart Park is in Chicago's Logan Square neighborhood. It's on the north side of Armitage Ave. -- several blocks east of Pulaski Rd., just south of Dickens and Shakespeare Streets. We meet in the multipurpose room to the left of fieldhouse lobby; some workshop sessions may happen outside in the park, weather permitting.
