Event Details

 

Description

You are invited to a free documentary screening of Chicago at the Crossroad, a feature film that explores the history of housing segregation and violence in Chicago and America. A panel discussion will follow. 

Film Synopsis:
Much is said about the violence that plagues segregated communities. But what is known about the systems that created it, the laws that isolated it, and the policies that abandoned it? And how does a city heal from decades of heartbreak and pain? A feature documentary filmed over the course of 15 years, Chicago at the Crossroad answers these questions, offering a penetrating look at the incessant segregation, violence and disastrous public policy decisions that affect Chicago and cities across the country.
