About the Event

Please join us for an evening of research & refreshments. 2017 BMRC Summer Short-term Fellows LaVerne Gray and Ruby Mendenhall will be sharing their work on research topics “In a Collective Voice: Uncovering Community-Based Information Environments of African-American Activists-Mothers in Chicago Public Housing, 1955-1970” and “The Role of Architecture and Urban Planning in the Connection between Race, Space and Health in African American Communities in Chicago”, respectively.

About the Fellowship Program

Through an international competition, the BMRC offers 1-month residential fellowships in the City of Chicago for its Summer Short-Term Fellowship Program. Generously funded by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation since 2009, the Summer Short-Term Fellowship Program has engaged scholars, artists, writers, and public historians from all around the world to better formulate new historical narratives of Chicago’s past. The new, original research and art developed through this program is significant as it illuminates the national and international importance of Chicago’s African American community.
