Event description

Description

This month’s First Fridays at the Schomburg is themed “For the Love of House Music,” in honor of Frankie Knuckles. Known as the “Godfather,” Knuckles helped build House–a style of Chicago dance music that revolutionized club culture in the ‘70s and ‘80s and still resonates around the world today. Check out our pop-up displays, sign-up for a Schomburg Society membership, and visit our Schomburg Gift Shop while networking and dancing the night away to tunes provided by DJ Frankie Paradise.

Donations are welcome.

Suggested dress code is FABULOUS!
